Schubertiade Festival

For over 25 years the Schubertiade Festival has been mastering the seemingly impossible: To maintain intimacy, yet become the most important Schubert festival in the world.

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 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 cultural experience: hearing music performed by outstanding artists in idyllic surroundings. The concerts, furthermore, are not presented in the guise of an anonymous or interchangeable international festival, but are part of a structured festival programme with a distinctive identity formed by an uncompromising dedication to the art of Franz Schubert.


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 programme, which also features orchestral concerts, readings and masterclasses. In contrast to the hustle and bustle prevailing at other festivals, the Schubertiade takes care to preserve the more intimate character of a music festival where energies can be concentrated on what really matters: music-making of exemplary quality.


Consequently, the list of artists who have performed at the Schubertiade reads like a "Who's Who" of the lieder and chamber music scene. In addition, it is part of the Schubertiade tradition to nurture young talent. By scheduling artists at the beginning of their career, the festival gives its audience the opportunity to make some exciting new discoveries.
