Rizzi English Version Book FRONT Cover

Read my latest novel – New Vienna Conservatory – A Look Back From America Available in paperback or e-book.

New Vienna Conservatory – A Look Back From America chronicles the founding, history and demise of the most prestigious music school in all of Europe during the 20th century. Pairing its history with the life of young violin virtuoso Gene Rizzi, the school, its students and teachers are brought back to life for generations of new aspiring musicians. Richly appointed with photographs from the 1920s and 1930s, this book explores the rich musical life of pre-war Vienna and its eventual fall to Nazism and racism. Suggested as a “must read” for any serious music student or music historian.

  1. This the master (bastion) and walkway of an old castle. Northern Italy would be my guess, but could be Austria or Germany. Am I right?

  2. It is not the Habsburg imperial coat of arms because the eagle has only one head and no crown. But it could still be that side of the family…

  3. You got me curious:

    Esto nobis, Domine, Turris fortitudinis

    That is a medieval Gregorian chant, used also to accompany the Crusaders. That phrase is written in many places, Paris, Toulouse, Benevento, St. Galen, Zurich, even London.

    Now up to you…. I’m curious
