The Wrong Boat

On their way to Vienna, Amadeus and his sister Nannerl follow a troupe of actors and accidentally board the wrong ship. While their parents sail on the Danube towards Vienna, the two children enjoy their time aboard the pleasure boat. They cap off the performance of the acting troupe with their own musical accompaniment. Along the way, they help bring peace between an angry father and his daughter and future son-in-law. But will the Mozart siblings ever catch up with their parents' ship? The Music: "Sonata in C Major" K. 545; "Flute Quartet in D" K. 285; "Concerto for Two Violins and Orchestra in C" K. 190; et al. Additional Content: The Mozart family travels to Vienna in this episode. When they arrive in Passau at the river Donau, they board a ship instead of a coach. The trip from Salzburg to Vienna took several days, as traveling during that time was much more difficult and time-consuming. Monti shows how people traveled in the past.
