Talk – The Hidden Magic of Lieder
29 September 2017 | 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm| £5
A Tetbury Music Festival Event at the Goods Shed
Ahead of the recital by Mark Padmore, tenor, and Till Fellner, piano, at St Mary’s Church at 7.30 this evening, Dr Natasha Loges comes to the Shed explains the fascinating ways in which Schubert’s handling of music and poetry provided a model for Schumann’s most beloved song-cycle, Dichterliebe – a cycle composed in the intense period before Schumann’s marriage to Clara Wieck.
Although Schumann never met Schubert, he was a huge admirer of his music, especially his songs. In this talk, Dr Loges will also examine the richness of Heinrich Heine’s poetry against the fevered social and political climate of 1840s Germany.
Natasha Loges is Head of Postgraduate Programmes at the Royal College of Music, London.
The more you know about how the background to lieder the greater will be your enjoyment of this evening’s recital.
Lecture tickets are £5.00 and can be purchased below.
