Venue, Timing and Cost
Carolyn Sampson and Joseph Middleton bring a floral sparkle to the Festival with highlights from their hugely well-received CD ‘Fleurs’. This glorious collection of flower-related songs includes songs by Purcell, Schumann, Quilter and many French composers, as well as Strauss’s stunning Mädchenblumen cycle. Described in The Guardian as possessing ‘freshness of tone, superb control and subtle sensuality’, it is a huge pleasure to welcome Carolyn Sampson and regular duo partner Joseph Middleton back to the Festival.
The mezzo-soprano Shakira Tsindos and pianist Lana Bode (who also appears in recital on Wednesday 20th) open tonight's concert with Rhian Samuel's Wildflower Songbook, commissioned by Oxford Lieder in 2015.
