A Lieder recital devoted entirely to the songs of Carl Loewe (1796-1869). Born a year before Schubert and outliving him by more than four decades, Loewe performed his songs throughout Germany to great acclaim and was known as the ‘North German Schubert’.

The Academy Song Circle performs such comic gems as ‘Hinkende Jamben’ and ‘Die wandelnde Glocke’; celebrated ballads including ‘Erlkönig’ and ‘Odins Meeresritt’; and four songs from Frauenliebe, a song cycle that bears comparison with Schumann’s, plus many more. Surtitles will be provided.
