Schubertiade Hohenems 2015: Cast and programme changes

Thursday, October 1, 4 p.m., Chamber concert
Sunday, October 4, 11 a.m., Chamber concert

Gautier Capuçon suffers from a muscle inflammation that affects the fingers on his left hand and, on the advice of his doctors, had to cancel his two upcoming Schubertiade appearances.

Due to Renaud Capuçon's tight concert schedule he found himself unable to rehearse the October 4 trio programme sufficiently with a different cellist at such short notice. We have therefore decided to entrust the concert to Gabriel Le Magadure (violinist of the Quatuor Ebène), Valentin Erben (cellist of the Alban Berg Quartett) and Shani Diluka (piano), who will perform the following programme:

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Violin Sonata in E minor, KV 304/300c
Ludwig van Beethoven: Piano Trio in C minor, op. 1/3
Franz Schubert: Piano Trio in E-flat, D 929

We would like to thank all artists for their support. Tickets already purchased for the chamber concert on October 4 (11am) remain valid or may be exchanged or returned prior to the concert.

Igor Levit to play additional solo recital on August 24, 2016

After the cancellation of his August 2015 solo recital due to sickness, and in order to complete his Beethoven sonata cycle as scheduled, Igor Levit will play an additional solo recital on Wednesday, August 24, 2016, at 11 a.m., in Schwarzenberg. Since he would like to keep the original order of the cycle, he will play the programme which was cancelled (IV) on October 4, 2015, in Hohenems, followed by the programmes (V) and (VI) on June 25  (4 p.m.) and on August 24 (11 a.m.), 2016, in Schwarzenberg.

The Schubertiade Anniversary Project:
Franz Schubert's Complete Lieder

In 2015 we will celebrate the 40th Schubertiade season and in 2016 forty years will have passed since the first Schubertiade was staged in Hohenems in May 1976. On the occasion of this anniversary, Franz Schubert's complete solo lieder with piano accompaniment will be performed at the Schubertiade in Hohenems and Schwarzenberg in the course of two seasons.

The Schubertiade in Schwarzenberg and Hohenems is considered the most important and distinguished Schubert festival in the world, presenting about 80 events and registering an average of 40.000 visitors per annum. No other festival is able to offer so many outstanding song recitals in such a short period of time, while also focussing on top-class chamber concerts and piano recitals. Orchestra concerts, lectures, exhibitions and master classes given by the best singers and instrumentalists of our time add to the programme’s versatility.
