Poetry Making Song

28 March 2020, 11:00am - 3:00pm

Oxford Lieder regulars Helen Abbott and Natasha Loges team up to lead an interactive study event looking at some famous poet-composer pairings from the French and German traditions. Using examples from Baudelaire and Debussy, Daumer and Brahms, Goethe and Schubert, and Verlaine and Fauré, we will explore meanings, contexts, and sounds in the poetry that makes up song. The sessions will include live music examples and collaborative poetry readings.

11am – 11.45am
Meanings: Our world collides with the poet’s

12pm – 12.45pm 
Contexts: A life in poetry

Lunch break

2pm – 3pm
Sounds: Making the poem into song
