Olga Monakh and Peter Schöne share a particularly long and collaborative musical partnership. They were able to win a competition together as early as 2004, and have since performed many joint song recitals, with more planned for the future.
Olga Monakh has been actively involved in the Schubert Lied Project since 2010, having recorded over 120 songs to date, with some still in the editing process. In 2013, she performed a total of approximately 80 songs live with Peter Schöne in a concert series in Berlin, in moderated concerts before a live audience.
Holger Berndsen and Peter Schöne have known each other since 2004. Their musical paths crossed several times over the years, but it was not until 2012 that they joined forces for various song projects. They subsequently performed joint song evenings and recorded songs for the Schubert project.
So far, 14 jointly recorded songs have been published on our website.

Boris Cepeda and Peter Schöne had already collaborated on several song evenings when they had the idea to intensively deal with Franz Schubert's songs.
Together, they began recording Schubert songs in 2008. During the first period, they produced particularly many recordings. In 2008, the two recorded almost 50 songs, and in 2009, they recorded almost 100 more songs, resulting in a total of 142 song recordings in these two years that can be heard in this constellation.

Peter Schöne had the idea in 2008 to record all of Schubert's songs and present them on a dedicated website on the internet.
His close musical partnership with Boris Cepeda at that time turned the idea into a project, which quickly became clear would take many years to complete.
Eight years later, half of all the songs had been recorded and released.
Together with several pianists, work on continuing the recordings is being carried out continuously.
Peter Schöne was awarded the Schubert Prize of the German Schubert Society for this project.

Alexander Fleischer and Peter Schöne have crossed paths at various events, but never had the opportunity to perform together until 2018, when they were invited to perform at several concerts. This led to the development of a fruitful and welcomed artist friendship. Both artists share a passion for songs, so it was only a matter of time before they recorded their first pieces for this website.

Christoph Schnackertz and Peter Schöne started making music together by chance. During a concert, the singer had to drop out and the piece planned for that evening, composed by Wolfgang Rihm, had been premiered by Peter Schöne several years earlier. This was the starting point for their joint artistic activity.
In 2011, Christoph Schnackertz recorded Franz Schubert's songs for the first time with Peter Schöne. You can hear a total of 15 songs in this constellation.

In 2009, Ralph Neubert met Peter Schöne. As a study director at the same theater where the singer was engaged as a soloist, they quickly connected through a common musical language.
They gave several song recitals together at the Erfurt theater. In 2010, Ralph Neubert recorded Schubert songs with Peter Schöne for the first time.
You can currently listen to about 20 of these songs with him on this website. For more information about Ralph Neubert, please click here.
