For those still suffering withdrawal symptoms after the Schubert Project, help is at hand in this weekend celebration of song! With three superb evening recitals, the nail-biting auditions for the next Young Artist Platform winners, and a fascinating masterclass, there's much to look forward to. The weekend pass offers excellent value for those looking for true immersion. We look forward to seeing you there.
The Schubert Project will be the biggest ever celebration of the life and music of Franz Schubert. At its core is the UK's first ever complete performance of Schubert's songs, alongside a host of other works. Bringing Schubert’s Vienna to Oxford in a dazzling feast of music, art, theatre, food & drink, this three-week festival is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to immerse yourself in the master of song and his world.
We are now inviting applications from suitably talented and qualified duos for the Oxford Lieder Young Artist Platform 2015. Oxford Lieder is committed to finding and nurturing outstanding new talent and this year we are looking for two singer-pianist duos to be exemplary ambassadors for song.
Mezzo-soprano Sarah Connolly and pianist Eugene Asti gave a stunning recital at the 2011 Oxford Lieder Festival. The concert was recorded, and two tracks are now exclusively available to Oxford Lieder supporters. These two wonderful Mahler songs - "Die Gute nacht, die ich dir Sage" and "Ich Atmet' einen Linden Duft" - are free to listen to on this site. Click the titles below to download these tracks.
