  1. Frauenliebe und -leben Op 42 - Robert Schumann
  2. Sechs Lieder Op 48 - Edvard Grieg

Rowan Pierce gave a sensational performance at the 2016 Oxford Lieder Festival, alongside Malcolm Martineau, Dame Ann Murray and Sir Thomas Allen, and we’re delighted that she returns to close this season. She will sing Schumann’s great cycle Frauenliebe und –leben, ‘A woman’s life and love’, settings of the Franco-German poet and botanist Adelbert von Chamisso. She also includes Edvard Grieg’s six German songs. Grieg was a prolific song composer, primarily writing in Norwegian and Danish. These six songs represent his main foray into the German language, setting a range of poets including Heine, Goethe and Geibel, and they are a truly glorious collection of soaring melodies, exquisite piano parts and an emotional range from the devastatingly sad to the staggeringly elated.

Special offer:Enjoy a free glass of Gusborne Estate sparkling wine after the concert at Cherwell Boathouse by booking a table and showing your concert ticket.
