8. Thomas Oliemans: Schubert Winterreise
15 October 2022, 20:00 - 21:30
Thomas Oliemans is well known to Oxford Lieder audiences as a masterful baritone, having appeared numerous times at the Festival with the pianist Malcolm Martineau. But Thomas is also a pianist, and has recently given recitals accompanying himself, reviving a lost tradition of the singer-pianist. In tonight’s programme – the first of three Festival concerts following this format – he sings and plays Schubert's monumental Winterreise.
Watch 'Der Lindenbaum', performed by Thomas as both singer and pianist, recorded at Het Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, ahead of his recent sell-out performance there:
