For many years, the Heidelberg Lied Academy has been a very special location for all those eager to engage with the art song from a wider perspective. Under Thomas Hampson’s leadership, outstanding teachers, singers, pianists, theatre directors and Lied experts come and go, open classes vouchsafe fascinating glimpses of the Lied cosmos and reveal the quality of the young singers from all over the world fortunate enough to take part.
The 2020 Lied Academy consists of two modules: Module 1 will take place during the Schubert Week in the Pierre Boulez Hall in Berlin from 13 to 18 January 2020, Module 2 from 30 March to 8 April during the Heidelberger Frühling.
