Concert Series in the Schubert’s Birthplace
on Schubert Memorial Day
Franz Schubert, arguably the quintessential Viennese composer of the late Classical and early Romantic eras, unfortunately never achieved much fame in his short lifetime. He was, however, held in high esteem by a small group of admirers in Vienna who would organize informal house concerts to celebrate his work. This type of concert became known as a Schubertiade. In honor of this tradition, ARTBAUM is introducing its own Schubertiade concert series in the composer’s birth home. On the commemorative day of Schubert’s death, we invited a very special duo, the Pae Brothers, for the audience in Vienna. Join us in this unique opportunity to enjoy some of the most beautiful works of Schubert in a historic location!
