Songs of Love and Justice
Oxford Lieder Festival
Joshua Stewart (Tenor)
Deirdre Brenner (Pianist)
A wonderful programme of songs by African-American composers begins our weekend celebrating the multi-faceted riches of American song. The distinguished American tenor Joshua Stewart, who recently toured the UK and Europe with the CBSO and Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla as tenor soloist in Tippett’s A Child of our Time, and compatriot pianist Deirdre Brenner – making a welcome return to the Festival – include songs by Margaret Bonds, Florence Price and Adolphus Hailstork: all composers who are happily and rightly increasingly household names.
Festival Passes are available for a variety of In-person and Livestream ticket combinations.
