OXFORD Lieder’s The Schubert Project has won the prestigious Royal Philharmonic Society Music Award in the category of Chamber Music and Song.
It was also shortlisted in the Concert Series and Festivals category for the work at the 2014 Oxford Lieder Festival, which was the first time Schubert’s complete songs have ever been presented in a single festival.
The awards celebrate the highest possible standards of excellence in all aspects of musicianship.
Oxford Lieder promotes and celebrates song and its festival, founded in 2002, brings top artists to the city and showcases the new generation of talent, such as soprano Mary Bevan, winner of the RPS Award for Young Artists, who sang at the awards ceremony accompanied by Sholto Kynoch, artistic director of Oxford Lieder.
The 14th Oxford Lieder Festival â?? Singing Words: Poets & their Songs â?? will take place from October 16 to 31 and will focus on poets and the words that shape songs.
