The Oxford Lieder Festival is an annual festival presenting more than 35 concerts and dozens of other events celebrating the unique art form of song. It is a leading festival and the biggest of its kind in the UK attracting many of the world’s greatest artists.
A big part of the festival, Oxford Lieder has a long history of supporting young professional artists, showcasing their talent throughout the festival and this year is no different.

Pianist Samson Tsoy kicks off the Festival with 5 other pianists including the Festival’s creator Sholto Kyncoh along with a speaker Professor Nicholas Marston and Tenor Stuart Jackson with A Carnival of Pianos, on 14th October at 2pm. 6 pianists will perform some of Schumann’s early works with a half an hour in between to get to the next venue, it will be an exciting travel through Schumann’s music and Oxford!
