      EVENT DETAILS
      Oxford Lieder Festival - Opening Night: Schubert and Grieg

      Thrilling orchestral songs with two top singers; BBC National Orchestra of Wales with the leading Dutch conductor Jac van Steen; songs of myths, legends and Nordic landscapes: a spectacular opening-night concert in the splendour of Oxford’s Town Hall.

      Music by Schubert includes part of the incidental music of Rosamunde, as well as songs from mythology including ‘Prometheus’ and ‘Erlkönig’, in orchestrations by Berlioz, Brahms and Reger. BBC National Orchestra of Wales also performs the first of Grieg’s Peer Gynt suites, with the hair-raising ‘In the Hall of the Mountain King’, alongside songs from Peer Gynt including the haunting ‘Solveig’s Song’.

      Cost: £45/£35/£25/£20/£10; £5 (under 35s)
