Guitaria: Song Cycles with Guitar

This evening’s programme will begin with a Schubertiade, featuring Schubert’s settings of poems by Müller and Goethe in contemporary and modern arrangements for the classical guitar, a popular instrument in contemporary Vienna which the composer himself played.

In the second half, postgraduate singers and guitarists explore the rich repertoire of 20th-century song cycles featuring Britten's 'Songs from the Chinese', Burgon's 'Lunar Beauty' and Castelnuovo-Tedesco's 'Romancero Gitano'.
