Schumann and Shakespeare Songs

Kate Royal
The award-winning Oxford Lieder Festival presents renowned soprano Kate Royal, star baritone Johannes Kammler, and acclaimed pianist Roger Vignoles.
This is part of a once-in-a-lifetime “Schumann Project” from 14th-29th October in which all Robert Schumann’s songs will be performed.  Since youth, he was versed in Shakespeare’s plays. Schumann’s four ‘Lieder und Gesange’,
each contains five settings of poets including Shakespeare, composed between 1840 and 1850.
This rare chance to hear all twenty of these beautiful settings includes the first song Schumann ever wrote, taken from “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”.
