Ashley RICHES baritone and Sholto KYNOCH piano

Programme:

Schumann Songs:

Liederkreis Op.24
Dichterliebe Op.48
Kerner Lieder Op.35

Experience extremes of elation and despair as Baritone Ashley Riches and pianist Sholto Kynoch (director of The Oxford Lieder Festival) perform two great song cycles by Schumann.

Dichterliebe (‘A Poet’s Love’) is a celebration of his happiness with his beloved Clara and their togetherness, but it is also a remembrance of the enormously difficult time they’d had when perhaps they both thought this wasn’t going to work and they wouldn’t be allowed to be together.’
Liederkreis - journeys, circles, and integrated personal relationships illuminate the personal paradox called Life.

Robert Schumann – Letter to Clara (February 1840)
‘Oh my Clara, what bliss it is to write songs. I can’t tell you how easy it has become for me…it is music of an entirely different kind which doesn’t have to pass through the fingers…I should like to sing myself to death, like a nightingale!’
