Oxford Lieder Festival
Anna Stéphany (Mezzo-soprano)
Sholto Kynoch (Pianist)
Described by Gramophone Magazine as a ‘superb, glowing, impassioned mezzo’, Anna Stéphany makes a much-anticipated return to the Festival. The first part of her programme with pianist Sholto Kynoch includes a selection of Mahler songs taken from his Rückert Lieder and from his settings of the folk-poetry collection Des Knaben Wunderhorn (‘The boy’s magic horn’). After this, they perform Ravel’s Histoires Naturelles (‘Natural Histories’) and other French songs about birds, ladybirds, butterflies, cicadas and ants!
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.
