A musical bridge across Europe, along the Danube: the logbook accompanying the tour
This book follows the journey of Hubert von Goisern and friends on a transportation barge that was converted into a concert boat. Like a floating singing and ringing village, as he describes it, von Goisern travels up and down the Danube, upstream and downstream, all across the New Europe, from its centers to its edges, from Linz to Rotterdam and then to the Black Sea. He tells us of encounters with different people along the way and musical colleagues from more than a dozen countries. He describes concerts they held together and speaks about the desire for freedom and for discovering new places. His vision: unity through diversity. Music is the common language and message. Hubert von Goisern is an artist who carries this message out into the world, seeking communication and exchange beyond borders. He travels the world, travels to new places, and always returns as a different man.
Hubert von Goisern was born in 1952 in Bad Goisern. After several stays in South Africa, Canada and the Philippines he started his musical career with the band "Alpinkatzen". Since then, he worked on several musical projects and traveled the world.
