On the eve of this year's Young Artist Platform, Oxford Lieder is pleased to host an afternoon of talks dedicated to the topic of song as a form of performance. It's easy to think of song as a form of text - whether musical or literary - but this approach sometimes leaves out the equally important idea of song as a powerful encounter between performers and audience that is capable of expressing embodied emotions in a way that often goes beyond words. This half-day event examines the question of song as performance from a number of complementary angles - historical, biographical, theoretical, practical and pedagogical - and will contain accessible and stimulating papers from leading experts in the field.
