Oxford Song: Sarah Connolly and Joseph Middleton

Sun 13 October 19:00 - 20:45

Oxford International Song Festival 2024 – Cities of Song

Rückert Lieder

Sarah Connolly, mezzo soprano
Joseph Middleton, pianist

 

Generously supported by Sir Martin & Lady Smith

Dame Sarah Connolly’s recitals are an annual highlight of the Festival. She and Joseph Middleton perform the extraordinary Rückert Lieder, written by Mahler in the first two summers of the 20th century, while he was staying at his rural lakeside retreat in Maiernigg: immersed in nature and escaping the frantic pace of Vienna. Their programme also includes songs by Brahms, Debussy’s scandalous Chansons de Bilitis, and a selection of pastoral English songs by Bridge, Moeran, Gurney and Ireland.
