Schubert Abroad: Schubert & Co.

23 October 2018, 7:30pm 20 July 2024 - 7:23am

Schubert & Co. is an exciting ensemble of eight exceptional singers, with pianist Sholto Kynoch, which was launched at the Oxford Lieder Spring Weekend 2018. The ensemble recreates the convivial and intimate atmosphere of the salon setting for which much of Schubert's ensemble music was written.

Tonight they explore Schubert’s Italian songs, alongside Italian ensembles by Mozart and Rossini, both of whom had a huge influence on Schubert (and arguably vice versa in the case of Rossini in his later years). Also included are Schubert's settings of Shakespeare, Cibber and Pope, and the concert concludes with the complete settings from Walter Scott’s The Lady of the Lake, which include the famed Ave Maria as well as several ensembles.
