The Schubert Week

Thomas Hampson on the Schubert Week (in German)


Since the opening of the Pierre Boulez Saal, numerous singers and pianists have explored the inexhaustible riches of Franz Schubert’s songs in more than 25 recitals. Now this concert cycle, which aims to present the composer’s complete songs, continues with another edition of the Schubert Week.

As in the previous year, the program has been curated by Thomas Hampson, who will launch the festival with a performance of Winterreise, joined by pianist Wolfram Rieger. Over the following six days, established as well as rising artists will take the stage. Hampson will also lead public workshops with students from the Lied Academy of the Heidelberger Frühling Festival.
