The Music In 1894, graphic artist and sculptor Max Klinger presented Brahms with the Brahmsphantasie, a monumental illustrated book inspired by the composer’s songs. Brahms later dedicated his final work, Vier ernste Gesänge (Four Serious Songs) to Klinger, as a sign of his gratitude and respect. Illuminated by the Brahmsphantasie illustrations, this programme includes songs by Schubert and Brahms, tracing the ancient Greek and mythological themes that wind through this remarkable product of interdisciplinary dialogue.

The Artists A former member of the Vienna State Opera, and winner of numerous prizes and accolades, Samuel Hasselhorn appears in Oxford for the first time. Markus Hadulla performs and records with many of the most high-profile singers in Europe, and is a professor at the University for Music and Performing Arts in Vienna.

The bar at the University Church will be open from 8.30pm, between events 33 and 34
