Schubertiade Hohenems 2016: Cast and programme change
Angelika Kirchschlager is suffering from laryngitis and was forced to cancel several concerts, among them her Schubertiade recital. We would like to thank Manuel Walser (baritone), who will step in on short notice, performing Schumann's Dichterliebe and songs by Hugo Wolf and Richard Strauss with Wolfram Rieger at the piano. Manuel Walser, a member of the ensemble at Vienna State Opera, scored a big success at the Schubertiade Schwarzenberg last August singing Schubert's Winterreise. View detailed programme
