34. Winners of the Oxford Lieder Young Artist Platform: Siân Dicker & Krystal Tunnicliffe

16 October 2020, 5:30pm - 6:30pm

Each year, the Oxford Lieder Young Artist Platform seeks two outstanding duos – young professionals beginning to forge great careers – to be our ‘ambassadors for song’. They give recitals up and down the country in music clubs and festivals, supported by Oxford Lieder and flying the flag for song, as well as for our international partner festivals. Their showcase recitals at the Festival are always a highlight.

Siân Dicker and Krystal Tunnicliffe gave a sensational audition recital for the Young Artist Platform earlier this year, and both are already enjoying wide success. Today, they pick up the thread of our earlier ‘Solace in Nature’ study event with a programme based around birds, bees, fleas and all manner of animals. They range from Beethoven, Fanny Mendelssohn and Brahms, to Debussy’s great friend André Caplet, the eccentric English composer Peter Warlock, and Americans Samuel Barber and Florence Price. Three songs by Richard Rodney Bennett, including songs from the enchanting A Garland for Marjory Fleming, and a bit of Cole Porter draw the programme to a fun and uplifting close.

This concert will be streamed completely live from the Holywell Music Room. Shortly afterwards, it will also be available to watch again (using the same ticket and link) until 1 November 2020. Click here for further information on how tickets will work this year.
