Flüchtig - von Hubert Achleitner (2020)
Maria has disappeared. Herwig, to whom she has been married for almost thirty years, hasn't heard from her in months. The fact that she quit her job and took his Volvo at least gives reason to hope that she's still alive. But what has happened to their marriage, their love, their life together? Hubert Achleitner sends his protagonists on an adventurous journey, which takes them from the Austrian mountains, across Europe to Greece, and which above all turns out to be a highly emotional inward journey for them both.

Stromlinien: Ein Logbuch - von Hubert von Goisern (2010)
This book tells the story of the journey that Hubert von Goisern and his friends undertook on a cargo ship converted to a stage ship. With a floating, musical, singing village, as he called it, he sailed the Danube upstream and downstream through new Europe, from the centre to the very edges, from Linz to Rotterdam and down to the Black Sea. He tells of encounters with people along the river banks, of musical colleagues from a dozen different countries, of joint concerts, of the longing for freedom and distance and of a vision: unity in variety. Music is the common language and the message. And Hubert von Goisern is an artist who carries this out into the world, who looks for understanding and exchange across all boundaries. And so he sets off on journeys, off to uncharted territory and returns time and again as a new person.

Weit, weit weg: Die Welt des Hubert von Goisern (2009)
In 1992 Hubert von Goisern found fame across all borders with the song Koa Hiatamadl. He was considered as the most successful representative of "new folk music" and had become the founder of so-called "alpine rock". Yet his position on his musical trail between boundaries had barely been defined before he was somewhere else - departing and arriving to explore the sound of the world. And since then he has reinvented himself time and time again.
Bernhard Flieher has followed these journeys through many destinations and both the biographical and musical development, from the beginnings to present day. Along the way he describes the path that has been taken: straight ahead.
