Oxford Lieder: viola and voice

Thursday, October 25 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Holywell Music Room, Oxford United Kingdom + Google Map

The Dutch composer Julius Röntgen was a friend of Brahms, a central figure in the Dutch music world, and a much-admired if now neglected composer. In the spirit of Brahms, he wrote a series of pieces for voice, piano and viola: the Lyrische Gänge, only recently rediscovered. We hear these wonderful pieces alongside Brahms’ much better-known songs for the same ensemble, as well as works by Schumann, performed by Clare McCaldin, Simon Tandree and Libby Burgess.
