No series focussing on the music of Schubert would be complete without a concert exploring the catalogue of the Master of Song. Through the composition of his more than 600 Lieder, Schubert developed the form in terms of dramatic content, harmonic innovation and pictorial description. As Dvořák said: “Schubert created a new epoch with the Lied... All other songwriters have followed in his footsteps.”
“We can look forward to a veritable feast of song with the wonderful Irish soprano Ailish Tynan. Ailish has chosen some of Schubert’s most famous Lieder, alongside a cycle by the other great Romantic Lied composer, Robert Schumann. She will be joined by Katherine Spencer for the beautiful song of Schubert’s Shepherd on the Rock and some rarities for the same ensemble by Schubert’s contemporary Louis Spohr.” Sam Haywood - Artistic Director.
