13. Ten Years of the Oxford Lieder Young Artist Platform
10 October 2021, 11:00 - 12:00
St Hilda's College
The Oxford Lieder Young Artist Platform has identified and supported exceptional young singer-pianist duos since 2011. Four previous winners of the scheme join forces today to present a programme of Scandinavian song, curated by pianist Keval Shah who is now Lecturer of Lieder at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. Evoking the dramatic natural world of the Nordic countries, this concert starts a day that celebrates a rich song tradition.
