Early Ballads & Sacred Music: a Study Day presented with the Schubert Institute UK

12 October 2014, 1:00pm - 4:15pm


Presented in association with the Schubert Institute UK

Elena Copons soprano
Nicky Spence tenor
Roger Vignoles piano
Laura Tunbridge speaker
Crawford Howie speaker

Laura Tunbridge introduces ‘Adelwold und Emma’ (Schubert’s longest song!), an early setting of Friedrich Bertrand, plus Schubert’s only other Bertrand song – ‘Minona’ – as well as the setting of Schiller’s ‘Hagars Klage’ (Schubert’s first complete song).   Crawford Howie, Chairman of the Schubert Institute UK, then discusses Schubert’s sacred music. There will be performances of the sacred music in services around Oxford throughout the Festival, and this talk will illuminate this often-overlooked part of Schubert’s prolific output.
