Schubert as Dramatist: an international conference

24 October 2014, 8:30am - 5:00pm


Presented in association with the Faculty of Music, University of Oxford

Lorraine Byrne-Bodley is the keynote speaker in a one-day international conference that examines Schubert's perceived failure as an opera composer against his undisputed mastery of the small-scale drama in song. Speakers are coming to the Festival from around the UK, France, USA and Ireland.
