Schubertiade goes the extra mile

Schubertiade, a marathon concert dedicated to the great Viennese composer's birthday celebration, which was initiated by cellist Raz Kohn four years ago as a single concert, tours the country in its fourth season. This year the 3.5-hour long program features mostly the composer's vocal pieces, but not only. The program includes Lieder, performed by young Israeli singers Daniela Lugassi, Ayala Zimbler, Eitan Drori and Gabriel Löwenheim, both solo and in various combinations of duets, trios and a quartet.

The Venezia Ensemble - eight female vocalists with Ethan Schmeisser at the piano - will sing Psalm 23 and a poem by Sir Walter Scott.

The program also includes also several chamber pieces, performed by pianists Daniel Gortler and Ido Ariel, violinist Itamar Zorman, violist Yael Patish, Kohn and double bass player Eran Borovich. The concerts, traditionally presented by music journalist Yossi Schiffmann, will take place on January 29 at 1 p.m. at the Performing Arts Center in Rishon Lezion, on January 30 at 7 p.m. at the Einav Cultural Center in Tel Aviv, and on February 1 at 5 p.m. at the Henry Crown Theatre, Jerusalem.
