Liedkunst 2021 – A look back

In 2021 the Liedkunst at Husum Castle took place for the 20th time . Eleven singers and five pianists proved their skills during the master class. As the renowned musicologist and pianist Paul-André Bempéchat (Harvard University, USA) said: “Actually, all song duos should have won awards.”

After the 2020 Liedkunst unfortunately had to be cancelled due to the corona pandemic, young singers and pianists from Europe, America and Asia took part in a master class and concerts from July 26 to July 31, 2021 at Husum Castle, dedicating themselves to the interpretation of the Lied. A very special anniversary opening concert (Monday, July 26 at 7:30 p.m.) has been planned for 2021 in the Knights’ Hall of the Husum Castle. Ulf Bästlein, Charles Spencer and a prize winner of the last “Liedkunst” (Feride Büyükdenktas) designed the anniversary concert together.
