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.
