Andrew Kennedy (tenor) and Martin Ennis (piano)
Andrew Kennedy, one of the leading tenors of his generation, returns to Girton, where he is Musician-in-Residence, for a performance of two of the greatest collections of nineteenth-century Lieder. Schumann’s Op. 39 Liederkreis, settings of poems by Eichendorff, is often viewed as his greatest song-cycle; Brahms’s magnificent Op. 32 collection epitomises his concept of the ‘Liederstrauss’ – literally, a ‘garland of songs’ – works that cohere, though not necessarily through a narrative thread.
Admission free; retiring collection
