On the anniversary of Franz Schmidt's death, February 11th, 1939, there is a riddle to be "cracked"!
From the life of the composer:
Franz Schmidt and his friend and string quartet partner Oskar Adler usually met an hour before their performance in a Viennese coffee house, which was famous at that time.
After coffee, they played music for friends and invited guests in Dr. Adler’s ordination rooms, this was just around the corner from the Café.
The Café was originally called Café Gabesam and was a popular meeting place for artists. After the death of the owner and several changes of ownership, Café Gabesam moved to another street. In 1958 the Viennese Kaffeehaus Family Aïda took over the Café and still runs it today.
QUESTION: What was the name of the Café in Franz Schmidt’s time and in which street is it to be found?
The first three persons to "crack" the riddle will each receive a €10 Café-Voucher (Café Aïda).
Please send the answer to musikschule(at)perchtoldsdorf.at.
