The Oxford Lieder Festival 2018 goes on a Grand Tour of Europe in song.

Plus an unusual Schubertiade from Schubert & Co., a group of rising stars in the singing world brought together by the pianist Sholto Kynoch. Today, in the first of the series, Kai Ruutel sings Rachmaninov, Esther Magi and Tormis, and Camilla Tilling sings Korngold.
