The Schubertiade Festival is a festival for Franz Schubert which would accord him his due place alongside Mozart and Beethoven – this was the idea behind the first Schubertiade which was founded by singer Hermann Prey in 1976 in the small town of Hohenems, situated in Vorarlberg, the most western part of Austria.
This quickly developed into one of the most renowned of all festival locations, becoming an annual meeting place for an international audience that seeks an exceptional musical experience.
Today, with about 70 events and over 30,000 visitors per year, the Schubertiade is the most significant and distinguished Schubert festival in the world. Nowhere else are so many lieder recitals presented in such a short frame of time by such world-class singers. Chamber concerts and piano recitals of the highest calibre represent another branch of the annual program.
On August 29 2016, Veronika Hagen and friends appear at this festival.
