Salzburg with fortress

Few countries have so rich an historical heritage as Austria and it is easy to fall in love with the contemporary scene of this modern state.

There is Vienna, Austria’s capital on the Danube, once the centre of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy and thus a political, economic and cultural centre throughout history, with wonderful museums, art galleries, palaces, traditional cafes and splendid restaurants.

Trachtenmusik Fuschl

Austria’s present geographical status bears no relation whatever to its glorious past, but blended in suitable proportions modern Austria has a dynamic economy,  wonderful scenery of Lakes and Mountains, good food and wine, a thriving tourist trade and a cared for environment. Come and see for yourself, the Austrians will welcome you at any time of the year.

Oxford Lieder Festival

The Last of the Romantics: Mahler and fin-de-siècle Vienna explores the cultural melting pot that was Vienna at the very height of Romanticism. Our starting point is Mahler’s complete songs with piano but we also explore the songs and chamber works by his contemporaries and predecessors: Schubert, Beethoven, Brahms, Wolf, Zemlinsky, Korngold, and Strauss. Nestled amongst more than fifty performances are also study days, readings, screenings, and workshops. As well as evening recitals we have lunchtime and rush hour concerts every weekday, two of which are given by exceptional young Austrian singers soprano Christina Gansch and mezzo-soprano Christina Sidak. Our star studded line-up of artists also includes Ian Bostridge, Sarah Connolly, Angelika Kirchschlager, Mark Padmore, Roderick Williams, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, and many more.
