Photo by Tomoko Yamamoto of the church tower of a former Augustinian monastery and ruined Kuenringer castle  by Tomoko Yamamoto

Photo by Tomoko Yamamoto of the church tower of a formerly Augustinian monastery and castle ruins atop a rocky outcrop above the village of Duernstein on the Danube . The ruined fortress is Kuenringer Castle where Richard the Lionheart was held prisoner in 1192-1193.

This photo shows one of castle ruins dotted on the banks of the Danube River in Austria, which became the subject of a poem by Johann Meyrhofer, a close friend of Franz Schubert. The poem is titled, "Auf der Donau," which was set to music by Franz Schubert in 1817, one of his early productive years. The song is part of a multimedia show titled, "Water Songs and Water Landscape: Multimedia Show" by Soprano Tomoko Yamamoto.

Foto des Kirchturm des ehemaligen Augustiner-Chorherrenstiftes und der Burgruine in Dürnstein an der Donau. Koenig Richard Loewenherz 1192-93 wurde auf die Burg Hadmars von Kuenring gefangengehalten.

Dieses Foto zeigt die Burgruine Dürnstein am Donauufer. Im Lied, "Auf der Donau," Johann Meyrhofer, der Dichter dieses Gedichtes, schrieb "Wo ist die Turm, wo Pforte, wo der Wall, wo sie selbst, die Starken, erzgeschirmt, die in Krieg und Jagden hingestürmt." "Auf der Donau" ist ein Lied unter anderen auf der Multimedia Show "Wasserlieder und Wasserlandschaft" von der Sopranistin Tomoko Yamamoto.
