January remains Schubert time at the Pierre Boulez Saal: for the third consecutive year, Thomas Hampson has invited renowned lied singers and the most promising talents of the younger generation, together with their piano partners, to dedicate an entire week to the world of the Schubert's songs.

In his opening recital for this year's Schubert Week, Hampson, joined by his longtime collaborator Wolfram Rieger, contrasts Schubert’s settings of Goethe, Seidl, and Heine with lesser-known works by some of the composers he drew inspiration from—and those who were inspired by him.
