Schubertiade in Schwarzenberg

The most important Schubert festival world-wide

"When you step out of the car into the village square of Schwarzenberg by the fountain and the shingled houses of the Bregenzerwald, you know that you are home - at the Schubertiade. Each year, you can experience and enjoy the vast valley surrounded by the mountains, the cheese, village life in its natural course, concert breaks with cow bells and the chirping of crickets, evening discussions under the chestnut roof, traditional culinary treats, and musical high culture in the spirit of Franz Schubert, which is irresistibly compelling for spectators and artists."
Dresdner Neueste Nachrichten, Dresden.

A festival for Franz Schubert. The idea behind the first Schubertiade, which first took place in 1976 initiated by Hermann Prey in Hohenems, was to grant Schubert his rightful place alongside Mozart and Beethoven. Today, the Schubertiade is the world's most important and most renowned Schubert festival under the direction of Gerd Nachbauer including around 80 yearly events and almost 35,000 visitors. 

Twice a year, Schwarzenberg is a gathering place for artists, art connoisseurs, and music-loving visitors of the Schubertiade! Nowhere else will you find a program that offers such a large number of song evenings with the best singers in the world in such a short period of time. Chamber concerts and piano performances of the highest quality constitute an additional highlight.

Consciously uninvolved in today's festival hype, the Schubertiade concentrates on maintaining its intimate character and focusing its energy on the basics, that being first-rate musical renditions. Corresponding to the festival's objective, the list of artists who have performed at the Schubertiade reads like a "Who's Who" of the international lieder and chamber music scene. The Schubertiade also endeavors to advance the careers of young musicians and offer the audience the opportunity to make new discoveries.
