Schubert Weekend events in Berlin

Thomas Hampson launches the new year in Berlin, with a series of events at the Pierre Boulez Saal hosted as part of a ‘Schubert Weekend’ with pianist Wolfram Rieger. The duo presents the composer’s works in a lied recital on January 12, followed by a public master class with young artists from the Heidelberger Frühling Festival’s Lied Akademie on January 13 and a performance from the students that afternoon (tickets here).

On the evening of January 13, Hampson and Rieger are joined by soprano Christianne Karg in performance, this time highlighting songs from the middle and later period of Schubert’s life.

Very few tickets remain for all events; weekend packages are available at the following link.

Mr. Hampson’s recordings featuring works by Schubert are available via his Discography.
