Song at Wolfson / Tristan Hambleton: Schubert 'Schwanengesang'
20 February 2020, 18:00
This event will be broadcast from Wolfson College
Tristan Hambleton graduated from the Royal Academy of Music Opera School in 2015 and since then has rapidly established himself as an exciting and versatile artist. He has already performed for Glyndebourne Opera, Nevill Holt Opera, Welsh National Opera and The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, as well as at Bridegwater Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall, Wigmore Hall, the Auditorium de Bordeaux and the Concertgebouw Amsterdam. He and Sholto Kynoch perform Schubert's Schwanengesang ('Swan-song'). Although not intended by the composer as a cycle, it is a collection of the composer's very last songs that sit together perfectly and have formed a core work of the song repertoire.
After the concerts at Wolfson, book a table at the nearby Cherwell Boathouse and show your ticket to enjoy a complimentary glass of Gusborne Estate sparkling wine with your dinner. Booking essential: see website for details - cherwellboathouse.co.uk.
