With the central idea »On the Move«, the 24th edition of the festival is heading out into a new, open future. For the Heidelberger Frühling, being on the move in 2020 has a very concrete dimension. The doors of our main venue, the Stadthalle, will remain closed for the coming years in order to prepare this traditional location, which is so much appreciated by so many, for the future. We leave our home and move into the city. A festival campus with the festival centre as meeting point will be created around the Universitätsplatz.
Igor Levit wished the dialogue as a principle for the chamber music festival »Standpunkte«. And in 2020, the Lied Festival »Neuland.Lied« will also be dedicated to being on the road, to wandering: the concert programs will be peppered with Lied cycles. As part of its residency, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra will perform six concerts in various venues ranging from churches to pubs.
