What to expect

11am: Der Wanderer 

Franz Schubert: piano pieces 
Lieder: Der Wanderer, Der Wanderer an den Mond, Das Zügenglöcklein, Im Freien and from „Die schöne Müllerin“ 

The wanderer was Schubert’s favorite topic, and not just in the “Schöne Müllerin”. There is also “Der Wanderer”, Schubert’s tragic song about a man who has lost his home forever. It became one of his most successful pieces.  

3pm: In die Ferne 

Franz Schubert: String trio in B flat major, D 581  
Notturno for Piano trio, D 897  
Lieder: Abschied, Drang in die Ferne, Der Musensohn, Wandrers Nachtlied, Der Pilgrim, Der Alpenjäger 

Many heroes in Schubert’s songs set out to satisfy their wanderlust, singing, hunting, but also meeting a tragic fate. Schubert himself was a passionate wanderer, transforming the songs he heard on his rambles into sublime chamber music, for instance his Notturno for Piano Trio.  

6pm: In den Alpen 

Franz Schubert: Piano trio in B flat major, D 898  
Lieder: Der Alpenjäger, Im Hochgebirge, Im Abendrot, Am Erlaufsee, Auf dem See, Lied eines Schiffers an die Dioskuren, Abschied, Rückweg 

The third part of our Schubert trilogy is dedicated to the Alps and their lakes, alternating between idyllic and dramatic Schubert songs and the four movements of the wonderful Piano Trio in B-flat major. At the end it is time to say goodbye: the friends have to return to Vienna. 

Duration of each performance: about 60 minutes without an interval 


Prices: EUR 22 / 44 / 66 (single performance) 
EUR 44 / 88 / 132 (all three shows) 

U27 / Ö1 Intro

Daniel Johannsen

The Viennese learned from all-time legends such as Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Christa Ludwig and Robert Holl. He is undoubtedly one of the most important interpreters of the Lied by Franz Schubert, with which he also delights and touches the Styriarte audience time and again. In addition, his lyric tenor is in demand internationally in oratorio and opera productions.

Kristian Bezuiden­hout

Fortepiano, Harpsichord, Piano

Der Australier mit südafrikanischen Wurzeln, Jahrgang 1979, gehört zur absoluten Weltelite des Klavierspiels. Als künstlerischer Leiter des Freiburger Barockorchesters ist er in der Barockmusik ebenso führend wie als klassischer Konzertpianist auf den größten Podien und im Studio: Ihm gelangen Referenzaufnahmen sämtlicher Klavierwerke von Mozart.


A ramble through Austria with Schubert's songs

Welcome to a ramble through Austria with some of Franz Schubert’s most beautiful songs as well as piano and chamber music. To move out into the country, to escape the narrowness of the city – that is what Schubert and his friends dreamed of every summer. Often enough, however, there was not enough money, and they went for a walk only in their dreams – in Schubert’s songs. This is the topic of our Schubert trilogy on a summer Sunday in beautiful Schloss Eggenberg. Daniel Johannsen is the singing tour guide. Kristian Bezuidenhout provides for sensitive accompaniment on the fortepiano. 

With us you are sure to get into the concert :)
