Leeds Lunchtime Chamber Music 2018/19
Royal Academy of Music Song Circle
Programme to include duets, quartets and ensemble works by Schubert.
Each year a small group of the Royal Academy of Music’s most accomplished performers of the
song repertoire is selected to form the Academy Song Circle.
Since its inception in 2004, Song Circle has given over 50 concerts in venues including Wigmore Hall, the Austrian Cultural Forum, the Oxford Lieder Festival, the German Embassy, the Institut français, the Chelsea Schubert Festival, Kings Place, the Bolivar Hall, the National Gallery, the Academy’s Duke’s Hall, the David Josefowitz Recital Hall, and in private houses across London and farther afield.
Valentine’s Day is celebrated each year at the Academy with a programme of English, French, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish love songs; and there is an annual Schubertiade, given by candlelight and in 19th century costume, devoted to the songs of Franz Schubert.
The Song Circle has made three CD recordings: Songs of Spring, Songs of Seduction and Goethe’s Girls and Mörike’s Men.
