Master Class with Thomas Hampson 2018 Heidelberg Lied Academy


In this master class, American baritone and champion of art song Thomas Hampson works with Heidelberg Lied Academy fellows on their interpretations of German Lieder, and how to express the stories on a deeper level. Going beyond the confines of a traditional master class, the Lied Academy’s aim is to give young singers a broad and expansive text-based approach to interpreting song. The credo of the Academy, reflective of Hampson’s passionate belief in the uniquely expressive power of art song, is that singers should tell their own stories through music, creating richer performances through engaging and multi-layered interpretations.
