Following The Schubert Project, Oxford Lieder’s marathon survey of Schubert’s complete songs, the Festival won the prestigious ‘Chamber Music & Song’ category at the Royal Philharmonic Society Awards. At the awards ceremony at the Brewery in central London, Sholto collected the Award on behalf of the Oxford Lieder Team. He also appeared at the Awards in a pre-recorded performance with Mary Bevan, who won the Young Artist Award.
This October, the Oxford Lieder Festival will be the culmination of a long-held ambition and years of planning: The Schubert Project. The UK’s first-ever complete performance of Schubert’s songs features nearly 70 concerts (Sholto will be playing fifteen of those!), around 150 artists and a huge range of other events. Find out more at the Oxford Lieder website.
