AN HOMAGE TO THE GREAT
1828 - 2028
The years 2023-2028 mark 200 years since the five last years of Franz Schubert.
This leads up to the 200th anniversary of Schubert’s death in Vienna on 19 November 2028.
In order to pay homage to this important event, baritone Samuel Hasselhorn and pianist Ammiel Bushakevitz have started a multi-genre international project titled “SCHUBERT 200”. A major focus of this project will be the recording of one CD of Schubert’s songs per year for HARMONIA MUNDI, culminating in the year 2028. Each CD will mirror the Lieder that Schubert wrote exactly 200 years earlier.
The “SCHUBERT 200” project will be aimed at a new, young generation of Lieder enthusiasts. The project goal is to and is discover the extent to which Schubert's songs are relevant to our lives in the 21st century and how this connection can be made tangible.
