Title picture: Emperor Franz Joseph and his wife
Elisabeth, 1853/54, porcelain painting, museums of the
Sisi spent a happy childhood at the side of her beloved
father, and then, not even 15 years old, became empress
of Austria. She experienced love at first sight which was
unable to withstand the courtly demands between the
Vienna Hofburg and the Schönbrunn Castle. Worlds, also
between the father's zither-playing and the captivating
music of the royal and imperial metropolis. Thus she went
in search of her own life, found closeness to Heinrich
Heine - and just like her father also sought conversation
with the intellectual bourgeoisie - and the distance.
Vienna was Johann Strauss, The Blue Danube, Kaiserwalzer,
Tales from the Vienna Woods and his father's Radetzky
March, Joseph Haydn's Emperor Quartet and others.
