Celebration events on the occasion of the
New Schubert Edition's 50th anniversary
In May 2015, the opening of the 40th Schubertiade season will coincide with the 50th anniversary of the New Schubert Edition. On this occasion, a ceremony will be held on May 1 by the International Schubert Society (Tübingen) in cooperation with the Academy of Sciences and Literature (Mainz), the Austrian Academy of Sciences (Vienna) and the Bärenreiter Publishing House (Kassel). Julian Prégardien (tenor) and Urs Liska (piano) will perform selected Schubert lieder.
On the following two days, Members of the Editorial Board will discuss and put into practice various aspects of lied interpretation with artists such as Christoph Prégardien (tenor), Graham Johnson (piano) and Carolina Ullrich (soprano) in the course of a »music workshop«.
Please note that all events will be held in German and take place at the Markus Sittikus Hall in Hohenems. Even though admission is free, tickets will be given out. Seat reservations can be made via phone, fax, email or our online order form.
