Oxford Lieder Festival - Lord Byron's Grand Tour

  • TS Eliot Theatre, Merton College, Oxford (map)

Emma Stannard (mezzo-soprano), Malachy Frame (baritone) and Keval Shah (piano) open this year's Oxford Lieder Festival with an exploration of Lord Byron's Grand Tour of Europe. Byron’s Tour did not follow the conventional route, beginning instead in Portugal and ending in Turkey. Today’s event is a musical travel diary, tracing Byron’s fascinating journey in poetry and music, introduced by Byron expert Sir Drummond Bone, with readings and settings of Byron’s own poetry as well as songs from the countries he visited.
