The Hohenems Schubertiade 2015.

Penny Gore introduces concert performances from this leading chamber music festival, founded by the baritone Hermann Prey in 1976 in the small town of Hohenems, in Vorarlberg, the westernmost part of Austria.

The roster of artists appearing at the festival reads like a "Who's Who" of the lieder and chamber music scene. And alongside established figures, the festival fosters younger talent, heard today in Schubert's late Piano Trio.

Daniel Schmutzhard (baritone),
