Lied Academy at Pierre Boulez Saal Berlin

Despite the pandemic, the Pierre Boulez Saal in Berlin will once again focus on Schubert and his Lied oeuvre from 18 to 24 January – all events will be livestreamed. As in previous years, a two-day public workshop with scholarship holders from our Lied Academy under the direction of Thomas Hampson will take place in this context and in cooperation with the International Song Centre Heidelberg: On Friday, 22 January and on Saturday, 23 January, both at 3 pm. The young artists will present the results of their joint work in a final concert on Sunday, 24 January at 3 pm. Young Singers concerts during the week will also feature Fellows of the Lied Academy.

2021 String Quartet Festival postponed to 2022

Due to the nationwide lockdown extended up to and including January 31, 2021, the 2021 Heidelberg String Quartet Festival cannot take place from January 28 to 31 as planned, but will be postponed to 2022. Four of the six quartets invited for this year have already been able to confirm their participation, as has composer and longtime friend of the Heidelberger Frühling Wolfgang Rihm, on whom the program will focus. Tickets already purchased will be fully refunded by the organizer Heidelberger Frühling.

How »Frühling« reacts to the latest Corona regulations

Heidelberger Frühling is already planning two major events at the beginning of the year: The Heidelberg String Quartet Festival at the end of January, which is already sold out, and the biennial International Song Competition »Das Lied«. Due to the current development, digital alternative offers will be created with the media partners for the String Quartet Festival in case the events have to cancelled. In addition, the advance sale for the competition »Das Lied« will NOT start next Monday: Such a dense competition week with consistently 8-hour preliminary rounds and a final of several hours in front of an audience actually present would not be justifiable from the current perspective. However, since 2017 the competition has been offered via livestream, which has been very well received by a local and international audience of Lied enthusiasts even in the corona-free past.

Advance sale starts

The advance sale for the 2021 Heidelberger Frühling starts today. In order to comply with the pandemic-related event requirements and safety regulations, ticket sales currently cover around 30% of the usual seating capacity. Tickets are available in the Webshop (see Calendar & Tickets), by telephone on +49 6221 584 00 44 (Mon-Fri 10am-6pm) and at all known advance booking offices. The advance sale for the 2021 String Quartet Festival begins on 16 November.

  • Heidelberger Frühling

    Heidelberger Frühling

    The festival of curiosity – the Heidelberger Frühling abides by this mantra every year. Extraordinary artists meet each other and the audience in a personal atmosphere and use the space provided by the festival in order to experiment with new perspectives.
  • Streichquartettfest

    Streichquartettfest

    It is the microcosm of musical collaboration – and string quartet enthusiasts travel from all over the world to Heidelberg to participate. Every year an ignition of audience and international quartet community happens through dialogue and discussion. Which makes them far more than guardians of the past.
