Stopping for an ice cream under a linden tree near the hotel in Schwedenplatz I struck up a conversation with Rainer Schmidt, a 20-something classical guitar student at a Viennese academy for arts and music. He had not been aware that the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra was performing here tonight.
Schmidt says that with the large number of concerts always going on here, it’s hard to get noticed. “I guess especially for tourists because we have so many possibilities every day. I’m happy to live here.”
