Schubert and Beethoven, the birth of the Lied Cycle and a new voice in Romanticism
with Dr Katy Hamilton
This weekend we have heard music that changed the genre of the lied, particularly Gilchrist and Tilbrook’s programming of Schubert’s Einsamkeit. Dr Katy Hamilton, a regular researcher and presenter for Wigmore Hall, the Southbank Centre and Salzburg Festival leads our Young Artists through the birth of the piano accompanied song.
“Katy was a huge hit all round! Wearing her erudition very lightly, she proved a constant source of positive energy, deftly steering conversations and drawing the best from fellow guests. I only hope we can still afford her next year…” – Iain Burnside
