Students from the Royal Academy of Music’s ‘Song Circle’ present a recital of Lieder 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. Greatly admired by Schumann, Liszt, Wolf and Wagner (who preferred his ‘Erlkönig’ to Schubert’s), he composed over 500 songs in a great variety of genres.

The students will perform a breadth of Loewe’s repertoire, from comic gems to celebrated ballads, through lyrical pieces, a song cycle, and much more.

A whole evening of Loewe Lieder is almost unprecedented, and surtitles will be provided to increase the enjoyment.
