Everything Grows Extravagantly
Oxford Lieder Festival
Marcus Farnsworth (Baritone)
Libby Burgess (Pianist)
We are thrilled to present Cheryl Frances-Hoad’s new song cycle, Everything Grows Extravagantly. The cycle is a co-commission between Oxford Lieder and the Oxford Botanic Garden in celebration of our 20th anniversary and the Garden’s 400th, and sets specially-written texts by poet Kate Wakeling. Marcus Farnsworth, who has given numerous memorable performances for Oxford Lieder, and outstanding pianist Libby Burgess also include songs with a horticultural twist by Finzi, Clara Schumann, Roussel, Tosti and Quilter.
Ahead of this event there is a free pre-concert talk for ticket holders.
Festival Passes are available for a variety of In-person and Livestream ticket combinations.
