On January 31, 2017, the music world celebrated Franz Schubert’s 220th birthday. November 2018 will mark the 190th anniversary of his death. In a life that lasted less than 32 years, the Viennese composer created a multifaceted body of work whose fascination to this day is matched by few other musicians.
All of this is more than reason enough to continue the Pierre Boulez Saal’s Schubert Cycle. Following the performance of the complete symphonies and piano sonatas in the opening season, this current season we are presenting all 15 string quartets. The song cycle, dedicated to the performance of all of Schubert’s lieder over the course of four years, also continues.
Experience Schubert’s works in an intimate hall that provides an ideal setting for his music.
