Enjoy César Franck’s ever-popular Symphony in D Minor and George Gershwin’s lyrical jazz number An American in Paris. Sail down the Vltava River through the meadows of Bohemia with Czech composer Bedrich Smetana’s Die Moldau. Waltz into Vienna with Johann Strauss, Jr.’s On the Beautiful Blue Danube and Fritz Kreisler’s Liebesleid. Our trip ends in Eastern Europe with the Hungarian folksong Czárdás by Vittorio Monti.
