Baudelaire in Song
Oxford Lieder Festival
Mary Bevan (Soprano)
Ashley Riches (Baritone)
Michael Dussek (Pianist)
Charles Baudelaire, born 200 years ago this year, was one of the most influential French poets, though perhaps not as prevalent in the song repertoire as might be expected. Today, we add to the canon of Baudelaire songs with a new work by our Associate Composer Cheryl Frances-Hoad, performed by baritone Ashley Riches and pianist Michael Dussek. Mary Bevan also performs the best-known set of Baudelaire songs, by Claude Debussy, and the programme includes settings by Sorabji, Duparc and Fauré.
Ahead of this event there is a free pre-concert talk by for ticket holders.
Festival Passes are available for a variety of In-person and Livestream ticket combinations.
