A Carnival of Pianos: Schumann's early songs

14 October 2016, 10:30am - 11:00am

Although Schumann was not to write any further songs until 1840, these early songs (dating from 1827-1828) already show a remarkable depth and concision. Tenor Stuart Jackson joins Oxford Lieder's Artistic Director, Sholto Kynoch, for a rare performance of these works, setting the scene for the Festival.

This 30-minute concert is preceded by a talk given by Professor Nicholas Marston of King's College, Cambridge. The talk begins at 10am, also in the Holywell, and is free to Festival ticket holders.

This is part of our A Carnival of Pianos programme. Click here for full details of this event.
