The composer Franz Schubert, great Classical music artists and the rich cultural history of Hohenems are the main topics of the Schubertiade’s museums, which are located in six historically significant buildings and comprise 40 rooms. A walking tour of the neighbourhood leads past other buildings which played a key role in the Schubertiade’s history: Hohenems Palace was the setting for the first Schubertiade concert on May 8, 1976, and, one year later, the Parish Church St. Karl provided the stage for an appearance of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra with Karl Böhm conducting. At the same time, an exhibition revolving around the world-famous orchestra’s cellist Josef Sulzer (1850-1926) was staged at the villa that today houses the Jewish Museum. In the course of the second Schubertiade’s opening, a memorial tablet was uncovered by Hermann Prey at the birthplace of Josef Sulzer’s father, Salomon Sulzer (1804-1890). He served as a cantor in Vienna, where he was also acknowledged as a fine lieder singer, and commissioned Schubert with a psalm setting.
