Tune in this winter...

A new vision on Schubert's Winterreise

The Raschèr Saxophone Quartet, singer Bernhard Hirtreiter, composer Jay Schwartz, and the Raschèr Academy Orchestra proudly present this 2022 online advent calendar premiere. Hear us breathe life into this freshly recomposed masterpiece, as it has never been experienced before. The 24 songs of Franz Schubert‘s epic “Winterreise“ Each song brought to you digitally on its corresponding December day.

Please join us here every evening at 6:00pm CET, when we unveil that date‘s corresponding video from the “Winterreise“. We will leave all videos up as we make the journey, so that one can experience the work in its entirety, for a limited time, starting on Christmas Eve.
