The town of Schwetzingen (SHVET-zing-en>, Germany has attracted tourists for centuries. The local palace boasts spectacular gardens. Mozart even made several visits to see them. The gardens are still there, and since Mozart's time, the town has added a first-class music festival. From the concert hall in Schwetzingen, violinist Midori plays Mozart's Sonata in B-flat, K. 454, with Robert McDonald at the piano.
