The Hampsong Foundation takes over Thomas Hampson's World of Song series this month, presenting riveting conversations with scriptwriters and scholars from the foundation's Song of America and Song: Mirror of the World projects. Founded in 2003, The Hampsong Foundation creates platforms to support and proliferate the art of classic song—poetry set to music—from around the world as a means to enhance communication and understanding among cultures.
In this episode, Thomas chats with musicologist Dr Susan Youens, widely regarded as one of the world's foremost authorities on German song and the music of Franz Schubert and Hugo Wolf. Dr Youens wrote the script for the Foundation's Song: Mirror of the World program "After Wagner," and some of her writing on Wolf and Schubert is available via The Hampsong Foundation.
