Just a few streets away from Franz Schubert’s birthplace in the Vienna district of Alsergrund, Hugo Wolf died on February 22, 1903. But these two foremost song composers of the 19th century are connected by much more than a biographical coincidence.
Curated by Thomas Hampson, the program of the Pierre Boulez Saal’s 2024 Schubert Week will spotlight parallels and contrasts in their oeuvres and examine the music of Schubert and Wolf in a larger historical context by pairing their works with those of other composers.
In two public workshops, which will also be streamed live on Pierre Boulez Saal Online, Thomas Hampson works with young singers of the Liedakademie des Heidelberger Frühling Liedzentrums who will also be heard in a closing concert on Sunday afternoon.
In Cooperation with Liedakademie des Heidelberger Frühling Liedzentrums & Hampsong Foundation
