Franz Schubert – The complete symphonies and symphonic fragments

Unique concert and CD project in cooperation with the renowned Schubert scholar Michael Kube (Neue Schubert Ausgabe, Tübingen), presented at the Schubertiade

The first two Schubert recordings (Arias with Daniel Behle and an instrumental CD with Concert Ouvertures and the Fifth Symphony) were an international sensation (with awards by BBC Music Magazine, Gramophone, Fono Forum, Musik & Theater and Crescendo) and were commented on by Swiss radio SRF2: „What impresses me is that Michi Gaigg makes me hear a new Schubert through her own individual interpretational style“.
L’Orfeo now presents a new view on the symphonic composer Schubert. For the first time his complete symphonies as well as all symphonic fragments will be performed and recorded.
The L’Orfeo musicians are already in thrilled anticipation and invite the audience to join them in Hohenems.
