SPRING MINI-FESTIVAL: 'AN DIE MUSIK'
At the beginning of the 15th century, German classical music was revolutionized by Oswald von Wolkenstein, who travelled across Europe learning about classical traditions, spending time in countries like France and Italy. Ever since, the music of Germany, Bach to Haydn, Beethoven to Schumann, Brahms to Schoenberg, has been a favourite from the household to the concert hall, not at least the song that spread across the world.
Students of Royal Holloway Department of Music present an evening of lieder from the great Germanic tradition that we are so indebted to.
