Enjoy the whole festival live online for £165 with a Digital Festival Pass. All events will be available on demand after broadcast until 30th November, so you can catch up at a time which suits you.

This concert is presented in association with the Internationaal Lied Festival Zeist in the Netherlands, one of our international partners with whom we exchange Young Artists. Their Festival will include a recital given by winners of our Young Artist Platform, and today we welcome a young baritone and pianist from them. Raoul Steffani already has a burgeoning reputation as an exceptional song singer. He and outstanding pianist Lucie Horsch perform songs by Sibelius, Strauss, Grieg, and Grieg’s close friend Agathe Backer Grøndahl, who was one of Norway’s foremost romantic composers.



This event is an in-person and livestreamed event. Livestreamed performances will be available to watch live in our Digital Concert Hall at the advertised performance time and will be available to watch again and on demand until the end of November.

Want to watch this concert in person and at home? 'Hybrid' tickets, valid both in person and for the Digital Concert Hall, are also available for an additional £3 to the in-person price.
