About this event

Conor Biggs and Michel Stas return to the Kevin Barry Room with part twenty-nine of their titanesque Schubert series, the performance of the complete songs of Schubert.

If 1815 and 1816 were Schubert’s most productive years when it came to Lied composition (142 and 112 songs respectively), the remaining years of his life see a sharp downturn in quantity, though certainly not in quality. Only in 1823 and 1827, with the composition of the two great song cycles, do we see a return to the momentum of the earlier years.
