Acclaimed mezzo-soprano alumnus Katarina Karnéus and two recent graduates, Grace Carter and Rebecca Cohen, are participating in this year’s renowned Oxford Lieder Festival.
Now in its 14th year, the festival celebrates the rich history of song. It has rapidly become the largest event of its kind in the UK, consistently drawing big names such as James Gilchrist, Sarah Connolly and Eugene Asti. The festival runs a diverse programme of masterclasses, recitals, lectures and study sessions.
On Sunday 18 October Katarina Karnéus performs a programme inspired by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, with musical settings by Schubert, Wolf, and Beethoven. She will be joined by baritone Stephan Loges and accompanist/festival founder Sholto Kynoch.
Soprano Grace Carter and pianist Rebecca Cohen will be joining seven other outstanding students on the Oxford Lieder Mastercourse, a rigorous week of study with leading singers and accompanist and ending in a showcase performance. This year’s guest teachers are baritone Robert Holl, mezzo Ann Murray, Imogen Cooper CBE and Roger Vignoles.
