Crosscurrents (two performances)
Oxford Lieder Festival
This concert will be performed twice, 5.30-6.45 pm and 8.15-9.30 pm.
Benjamin Appl (Baritone)
Sholto Kynoch (Pianist)
Ellie Neate (Soprano)
Thomas Eeckhout (Pianist)
Benjamin Appl explores repertoire inspired by or written in the USA, but by composers who were not themselves American: Korngold, Dvorák, Weill, Schoenberg, and the Anglo-American Rebecca Clarke. The exception is a set of three songs by Samuel Barber that was composed for the great German baritone Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau.
Tonight’s Emerging Artists begin the concert with a performance of Thomas Adès’ Five Eliot Landscapes, five brilliantly inventive and colourful settings of the American poet T.S. Eliot that include views of New Hampshire, Virginia and Cape Ann.
Festival Passes are available for a variety of In-person and Livestream ticket combinations.
