Liedakademie at the Liedfestival

The current class of scholarship holders of the Liedakademie with 12 young singers and pianists will present themselves to the festival audience several times.

Under the deliberately playful title "Glücks-Lose" and "Herz-Lose" they will perform two Liedakademie concerts in which, curated by Academy pianist Elitsa Desseva, they will explore the inexhaustible theme of love - both in its romantic and happy manifestations and with a view to the disillusioning, rather difficult moments of a couple's relationship.

At the Workshop with Thomas Hampson and the composer Jörg Widmann, to whom a festival focus is dedicated, the baritones and pianists of the Liedakademie will study Widmann's forty-minute song cycle "Das heiße Herz" (2013/2015) and perform it on the eve of Widmann's 50th birthday in the third Liedakademie concert.

In the public master class I and II with Thomas Hampson, the artists of the Liedakademie work on musicality, technique and expressiveness. The audience is allowed to look over their shoulders and gain exciting insights into the work of one of the great Lied-artists of our time.
