theThe medieval minstrel and poet Oswald von Wolkenstein was heard at a concert given by the nubium trio in the tournament courtyard of the ruins of Falkenstein Castle.

The trio of Getty Huber, Tim Martina Schäfer and Konrad Huber is augmented by Gottfried Falkenstein. They didn’t just perform the songs and texts of the medieval artist, who traveled all over Europe from Greece to Italy to Scotland and the Holy Land. Musicians have compared Oswald von Volkenstein’s 600-year-old songs to songs much younger from these countries. They have achieved a very wide musical spectrum and captivated the audience. The musicians accompanied their singing with a variety of instruments such as the lute, mandolin, octave guitar, double bass, and ukulele.

A special bond exists between Oswald von Wolkenstein and Falkenstein through Konrad Huber, who came from the minstrel’s homeland and found his adopted homeland in Falkenstein, and Gottfried Falkenstein, who learned to sing in his native Falkenstein.

In addition to musical enjoyment, the Falkensteiner winegrowers also served delicious food.
