Oxford Lieder at Fairlight Hall / Helen Charlston

10 May 2020, 11:00am 17 June 2024 - 7:53am

The outstanding young mezzo Helen Charlston will perform Haydn's 'cantata' Arianna a Naxos, which explores the dramatic abandonment of the Cretan Princess Ariadne by Theseus, and was an immediate hit when it was written in 1789. Helen, a City Music Foundation Artist and Rising Star of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, also sings a selection of Brahms songs, including favourites 'Von ewiger Liebe' and 'Die Mainacht'. Her programme concludes with the six songs Op.13 of Clara Schumann: following the centenary celebrations of Clara Schumann in 2019, her place as a leading song composer is now firmly established and these are amongst her finest and most poignant songs.
