This season Music at Oxford is excited to be working in collaboration with the Oxford Lieder Festival on two spectacular events. This concert is the opening night of the 2017 Oxford Lieder Festival, which focuses this year on Mahler and fin-de-siècle Vienna. The programme features two of Mahler’s seminal works in captivating arrangements for chamber orchestra, as well as a selection of Richard Strauss songs.

The OAE, with conductor Thomas Kemp, is joined by pre-eminent singers, including acclaimed tenor Toby Spence  and baritone Dietrich Henschel, who is particularly known for his powerful interpretations of Mahler.
