In early 19th century Vienna, the “Schubertiades”, salon sessions where the composer Franz Schubert was a central figure and where the composer himself and other artists, as well as patrons and friends, performed and celebrated the Austrian composer’s compositions, became famous. These informal events included not only music, but also the recitation of poetry or songs and dances accompanied by the piano. They were intimate moments of sharing, in which art (and music in particular) occupied a central place.

This is the spirit that the pianist Maria João Pires and Judite da Silva Gameiro will recreate during three days at Gulbenkian Música, in four concerts where she will share the stage of the Grand Auditorium with other musicians. A major event not only centered around Schubert’s music, but also based on it and anchored in the idea of music as celebration.
