Soprano Alice Privett made a sensational impression at 2017’s Lieder Festival with an extraordinary performance of Schoenberg’s seminal Pierrot Lunaire as well as stepping in at short notice for songs by Zemlinsky with the Piatti Quartet. We celebrate Schubert’s 222nd birthday today, with songs that include his famous settings of the character Mignon, from Goethe’s epic novel Wilhelm Meister. Alice also performs Strauss’s 'Ophelia' songs and Mahler's powerful Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen ('Songs of a Wayfarer').

SPECIAL OFFER:
