In the organizer's words:
Hugo Wolf died on February 22, 1903, just a few blocks from Franz Schubert's birthplace in Vienna's Alsergrund district. But it is not only biographical coincidence that connects the two probably most important song composers of the 19th century. The program of the Schubert Week 2024, curated by Thomas Hampson, illuminates parallels and contrasts in their oeuvre and places the works of Schubert and Wolf in dialogue with other composers in a larger music-historical context.In two public workshops, which will also be livestreamed on Pierre Boulez Saal Online, Thomas Hampson will work during the Schubert Week with scholarship holders of the Liedakademie of the Heidelberger Frühling Liedzentrum. The young singers will then present the results of their work in a final concert on Sunday afternoon.
In cooperation with the Liedakademie of the Heidelberger Frühling Liedzentrum & Hampsong Foundation
