The LIFE Victoria Festival in Barcelona is one of our international partner festivals, and we are proud to welcome their Young Artists to Oxford (our own Young Artists give an annual performance in Barcelona). Chinese tenor Runzhe Li and Catalan pianist Mar Compte perform Britten’s seven settings of the artist-poet Michelangelo, an exuberant cycle written for Peter Pears in 1940. As well as a group of Schubert songs, they perform songs by the Chinese composer Huang Tzu, a prodigiously gifted musician who emigrated to the US, where he was already an influential figure when his life was cut short by typhoid aged just 34. For the song 'Three wishes of roses', they are joined by the talented young London-based violinist Adrian Wang.
