Settings of Rellstab & Claudius: Roderick Williams, Katharine Watson & Susie Allan

21 October 2014, 12:10pm - 1:10pm

This concert is generously supported by The Loveday Charitable Trust


Katharine Watson soprano
Roderick Williams baritone
Susie Allan piano

Today we hear the settings of Ludwig Rellstab from Schubert's final year, commonly known as part of Schwanengesang. This was not in fact intended as a cycle by Schubert, but was pieced together after his death by the publisher Tobias Haslinger. The remaining songs (the settings of Heine, and Seidl's 'Die Taubenpost') can be heard in the closing concert of The Schubert Project.

Alongside these songs, we also hear Schubert's much earlier settings of Matthias Claudius. Baritone Roderick Williams, long a favourite of Oxford Lieder audiences, is joined by the fast-rising soprano Katherine Watson and pianist Susie Allan.
