The touching, effortlessly melodious music of Franz Schubert first gained fame at informal gatherings in 19th-century Vienna – evenings of song, instrumental music, even poetry and dance: the Schubertiade. Joined by an unusual instrumental trio from the time, acclaimed German tenor Julian Prégardien recreates the unmistakable artistic atmosphere of a Vienna salon from Schubert’s time within St Cecilia’s Hall, with a specially assembled collection of music, literature and more.
