Song at Wolfson: Love's Lasting Power

30 January 2024, 6:00pm - 7:00pm

For our first Song at Wolfson event of the year we have a special all-Schubert programme on the eve of the composer’s 227th birthday, from former Oxford Song Young Artist Harriet Burns and pianist Ian Tindale. Harriet and Ian have performed together as a duo for almost a decade, and with this concert they are also celebrating the launch of their first CD together, Love’s Lasting Power.

The wonderful programme is a deeply personal choice of Schubert songs, exploring the theme of love, but also the friendships and relationships between poets and the composer, out of which he crafted songs of astonishing empathy. From many-splendoured and joyous, to tragic and rejected, homo- and heterosexual, light-hearted and broken-hearted, heavenly and earthly, innocent and anything but...

Former Winners of the Contemporary Song Prize in the International Vocal Competition at ’s-Hertogenbosch, and regular performers at the Oxford International Song Festival, Ian and Harriet bring an outstanding empathy of their own to songs in which we hear, in Ian’s words, ‘young artists being creative together and exploring things’.

CD copies of Schubert Lieder: Love's Lasting Power will be on sale at the end of the recital, which Harriet and Ian will be happy to sign.
