Hugo Wolf died on February 22, 1903, just a few blocks from Franz Schubert's birthplace in Vienna's Alsergrund. But biographical coincidence is not the only thing that connects the two most important song composers of the 19th century.
The program of the Schubert Week 2024, curated by Thomas Hampson, highlights parallels and contrasts in their work and places the works of Schubert and Wolf in a larger music-historical context in dialogue with other composers.
As every year, renowned song interpreters as well as young artists can be experienced in concerts and workshops in the Pierre Boulez Saal.
In cooperation with the Lied Academy of the Heidelberg Spring Song Center & Hampsong Foundation
