Blanche’s Waltz

For the birthday of Miss Jessica Tandy

Wien, Wien, nur du allein
Sollst stets die Stadt meiner Träume sein!
Dort, wo die alten Häuser stehn,
Dort, wo die lieblichen Mädchen gehn!
Wien, Wien, nur du allein
Sollst stets die Stadt meiner Träume sein!
Dort, wo ich glücklich und selig bin,
Ist Wien, ist Wien, mein Wien!

The web page where I found today’s midi of “Wien, Wien, nur du allein” offers a view of the pulpit of the Stephansdom in Vienna.  From Hermann Weyl‘s Symmetry:

“Here (Fig. 41) is the gracefully designed staircase of the pulpit of the Stephan’s dome in Vienna; a triquetrum alternates with a swastika-like wheel.”

The closest to Weyl’s Figure 41 that I can find on the Web is located here.

Perhaps Stanley Kowalski had a lower opinion than Blanche DuBois of swastika-like wheels.
