  08 Oct '21   |  Posted by: Birlinn

Vienna is renowned for being at the heart of key moments in European and world affairs, but beyond its political significance, the Austrian capital has for centuries been a hub for art and culture. Mozart, Beethoven, and many other composers were shaped by Vienna and the city has a profound impact on their legacy. Vienna: The International Capital, by former BBC Vienna Correspondent and current MSP and Culture Secretary Angus Robertson, tells the story of the city’s diplomatic and historical significance in a new, complete history of Vienna that features many of the characters who played their part in its history. Few books have an obvious musical playlist, but with the rich cultural history of Vienna, the Spotify playlist compiled by Angus below is the perfect accompaniment to the book.
