The Schubert Week (Copy)

Inspiration "Lied"

The 2022 Schubert Week

In more than 600 songs, Franz Schubert brought to musical life virtually all aspects of human emotions. His artistic adventurousness and his gift to focus thoughts “into limited but sharply defined contours,” as Franz Liszt said about his fellow composer, helped make the German word “lied” an untranslatable term. As in previous seasons, the world of Schubert (including selected works by some of his predecessors and contemporaries) will be the focus of an entire week of concerts and workshops at the Pierre Boulez Saal, featuring both veteran and young artists brought together by curator Thomas Hampson. 

As part of the cooperation between the Lied Akademie of the Heidelberger Frühling and the Pierre Boulez Saal, young singers and pianists present their work with Thomas Hampson in two public workshops and a concluding performance. In the two Young Singers concerts, promising artists perform a full program together with established pianists.
