Songs by Purcell, Ravel, Schubert, Bernstein and Britten

James Gilchrist and Anna Tilbrook’s performances for the Oxford Lieder Festival are always sell-out events, and tonight is sure to be no exception.  They present a selection of Purcell, Ravel and Schubert alongside Bernstein’s humorous cycle La bonne Cuisine and Britten’s Winter Words, his unique and haunting settings of Thomas Hardy.
