Franz Sam gives a talk about cellars and mining sites in Stein. László Márton reads from his literary work and Viola Falb plays saxophone. Followed by a wine tasting hosted by Lesehof Stagård wine estate.

László Márton, b. 1959, is a Hungarian writer, who lives in Budapest. He has translated among others Martin Luther, Heinrich von Kleist, Goethe and Grillparzer into Hungarian. In 2017, he was awarded the Friedrich Gundolf Prize of the Deutsche Akademie für Sprache und Dichtung.
His most recent novel was Die Überwindlichen in a German and Hungarian edition.

Karl Kraus, the famous publicist and satirist, suffered unrequited love for a Hungarian baroness. László Márton has transformed this story into a linguistically playful and finely composed novel: “Die Überwindlichen”.

Viola Falb is an Austrian musician and composer whose compositions integrate “influences from free jazz and folklore to chamber music moods”. She plays saxophone for this evening concert.

Franz Sam and his team of sam-architects manage a versatile architectural portfolio with private, commercial and public buildings. He is an expert in early mining works as well as the cellars in Stein and Krems.


A collaborative project of Literaturhaus Europa with the Kulturamt of the City of Krems

In 2019, in cooperation with the Kulturamt of the City of Krems, Literaturhaus Europa is launching a new programme of events with plenty to explore: unique places and architectural gems in Krems, which are not accessible to the general public; sounds by artists from Krems’s thriving music scene and the centrepiece of every evening is award-winning literature by European writers who read from their literary work and take time to meet an interested audience in special surroundings.
