Song at Wolfson / Felix Kemp: Brahms, Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov

28 November 2019, 6:00pm - 7:00pm

The exceptional baritone Felix Kemp performs a glorious programme of high romanticism. Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov may be better known for their symphonic and piano music, but they were also at the heart of the great Russian song tradition, and it is a treat to hear a selection of their most beautiful and moving songs. Brahms's Four Serious Songs were the last songs of this masterful composer and are poignant, tender and ultimately uplifting. Felix and Sholto also include a selection of songs by Hugo Wolf, whose imaginative and inspired setting of poetry to music reached its apex in his settings of the poet Eduard Mörike. Felix Kemp is a young baritone on an exciting trajectory, who will soon be making his debut at the Royal Opera House, as well as Longborough Opera, Welsh National Opera and elsewhere. This is a fantastic way to begin our new season of Oxford Lieder recitals at Wolfson College.

After the concert, book a table at the nearby Cherwell Boathouse and show your ticket to enjoy a complimentary glass of Gusborne Estate sparkling wine with your dinner. Booking is essential to take advantage of this offer: http://cherwellboathouse.co.uk / 01865 552746.
