21. Imogen Cooper plays Schubert: Imogen Cooper & Harriet Burns

13 October 2020, 17:30 - 18:30

Imogen Cooper needs little introduction as one of the finest living interpreters of Schubert. We are thrilled that she will perform his G major sonata, D894. She will also be joined by former Oxford Lieder Young Artist Harriet Burns for a selection of Schubert night songs.

This concert will be streamed completely live from the Holywell Music Room. Shortly afterwards, it will also be available to watch again (using the same ticket and link) until 1 November 2020. Click here for further information on how tickets will work this year.

This event will be presented by Gavin Plumley.

Watch Imogen Cooper's 70th birthday performance from Wigmore Hall last year, where she plays Schubert's last three sonatas:
