It is the largest music festival in South Germany and ranks among the top international festivals for classical music: Heidelberger Frühling (Heidelberg Spring). 2016 it celebrates its 20th season with roughly 120 events. Every year the festival envelops the romantic German city in a four-week musical buzz, becoming a cultural beacon in one of the most beautiful regions in Germany. Of particular interest is the song category which is closely tied to Heidelberg and whose diversity and relevance is to be highlighted by the Song Academy during the course of a weekend workshop entitled “Uncharted Territory – Song”. Guests include the BBC Philharmonic, the multi-percussionist Martin Grubinger, the Pianist Daniil Trifonov and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra.
