The Sound of Schubert's Music in Vienna
Listen to Schubert’s music at this hand-picked list of music venues - or where (we are positive) he would have enjoyed playing.
by Marsa Kindl-Omuse and Marietta Steinhart
More composers have lived in Vienna than in any other city, but maybe no other was more of a Wiener than Franz Schubert. His melodies channel the Viennese in a timeless manner and have a „permanent edge of mourning in his music.” Today, Vienna is also a city where everyone – young, old, rich, poor, local, visitor - has access to an infinite amount of music programmes, to the most celebrated artists in the classical music world, and to a wide selection of music venues.
“Franz Schubert transformed a world from poetry into music. He took the art song to an unprecedented level.“
“Schubert is proof that God exists."
“Time, as countless and beautiful as it is, will not bring a Schubert again anytime soon!”
