Schubert: Late Masterpieces – Oxford Lieder Festival 2022
Mark Padmore tenor
Till Fellner piano
Emma Roberts mezzo-soprano
Lucy Colquhoun piano
For this unmissable all-Schubert recital, Mark Padmore is joined by the distinguished Austrian pianist Till Fellner, who plays with ‘natural ease, eloquence and impeccable artistry’ (The Times). They focus on Schubert’s settings of Karl Gottfried von Leitner and Johann Gabriel Seidl, two poets encountered by the composer towards the end of his life and at the height of his powers. These settings date from 1826 until Schubert’s death in 1828 and although they are not grouped as cycles – and thus enter the concert hall less frequently than Winterreise or Schwanengesang – they are among the most profound and masterful of his great oeuvre.
Generously supported by Sir Martin and Lady Elise Smith
