From 10 October until 1 November, something unbelievable is happening in Oxford. Across 62 concerts, with 150 artists, the Oxford Lieder festival is putting on the Schubert Project. A focus on Schubert’s songs? A look at Schubert’s Vienna? A glimpse of the creative imagination that inspired the world’s greatest outpouring of song? No, something much more ambitious: for the first time in this country, the Schubert Project will present performances of Franz Schubert’s complete songs.
Sounds amazing. What I wouldn’t give for a free couple of weeks to take as a holiday to Oxford.
