The Internationale Hugo-Wolf-Akademie is an internationally active association dedicated to a very special art form: At the center of all its activities is the art song in all its richness and diversity. However, organizing and hosting recitals is only one part of the association's work.
It is particularly important to the IHWA to convey a holistic and, above all, global view of the art song and, above all, to make knowledge and repertoire beyond the usual programme paths known and accessible. In our "Song Knowledge" section, you will therefore find a lot of interesting and, above all, new information on the subject of song, from special offers for (song) students to a portrait of the life of our patron saint Hugo Wolf and numerous special projects that look far beyond the Central European horizon and open up new, contemporary worlds of song.
