SEOUL, May 15 (Korea Bizwire) — The 500-meter path that leads from the exit of Yangjae Station (subway line 3) in the direction of the Cultural Arts Studio, Seocho has been revamped as the “Mozart Promenade.”
Seoul’s Seocho district office revealed yesterday that a new walkway (near subway exit number 12) themed after Mozart’s “Quintet for Piano and Woodwinds” composed in 1784 had opened its doors.
At the foot of the promenade’s entrance, a sculpture of Mozart is on display along with an “art bench” on which reliefs of various instruments such as the oboe, clarinet and bassoon are engraved.
Every day from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. and from noon to 1 p.m., classical music by Mozart will be played through speakers behind the art bench.
Visitors can enjoy listening to excerpts from such Mozart favorites as the Turkish March and Figaro’s Wedding.
