‘Transfigured Love’ Ian Bostridge & Julius Drake

Tue 28 Sep 19:30

Oxford Chamber Music Festival

Our Festival takes flight with two of the greatest song-cycles of all, separated by Arvo Pärt’s remarkable setting of Robbie Burns: so ‘simple’, yet haunting and unforgettable. Beethoven’s gentle, folk-like songs of longing for an absent lover flow one into the next, and end as they began, to form a ‘ring of song’ – the first song-cycle. The idea inspired countless composers, especially Schumann, whose The Poet’s Love (Dichterliebe) charts a love affair with the psychological insight of a great dramatist – and some of Schumann’s finest piano inspirations.
