To the Distant Beloved (two performances)
Oxford Lieder Festival
This concert will be performed twice, 5.30-6.45 pm and 8.15-9.30 pm.
Robin Tritschler (Tenor)
Roger Vignoles (Pianist)
Gramophone Magazine wrote last year of Robin Tritschler’s performance of Beethoven’s An die ferne Geliebte (‘To the distant beloved’) that ‘he combines something of Fritz Wunderlich’s warmth with Christian Gerhaher’s altogether darker introspection, and is beautifully alert to the cycle’s constant shifts of emotion and mood’. Today he is joined by Roger Vignoles, one of the world’s foremost accompanists, for a performance of this great song cycle. Their recital also includes songs by Brahms and Schubert, both grouped around themes to which the composers were recurringly drawn, respectively, birdsong and water.
Festival Passes are available for a variety of In-person and Livestream ticket combinations.
