Oxford Lieder Festival - 11-26 October 2019

The Last of the Romantics: Mahler and fin-de-siècle Vienna explores the cultural melting pot that was Vienna at the very height of Romanticism. The starting point is Mahler’s complete songs with piano but the Festival also explores the songs and chamber works by his contemporaries and predecessors: Schubert, Beethoven, Brahms, Wolf, Zemlinsky, Korngold, and Strauss. Nestled amongst more than fifty performances are also study days, readings, screenings, and workshops. As well as evening recitals there are lunchtime and rush hour concerts every weekday, two of which are given by exceptional young Austrian singers soprano Christina Gansch and mezzo-soprano Christina Sidak. The star studded line-up of artists also includes Ian Bostridge, Sarah Connolly, Angelika Kirchschlager, Mark Padmore, Roderick Williams, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, and many more.
