    A Year In Song

    As part of Song Day ('The Year of Song'), Emily Tindall, Gwilym Bowen and Jonty Ward perform songs by Robert and Clara Schumann, accompanied by Nicky Losseff.

    Robert Schumann    Dichterliebe op.4
    Clara Schumann    Songs

    1840 was a momentous year for Robert Schumann. He finally married Clara Wieck, after a lengthy legal battle with her disapproving father, and in this Liederjahr (‘Year of Song’) he composed over 138 songs. In so many of the songs, Robert sees life through Clara’s eyes, commenting and empathising in return from the piano.

    Emily Tindall (recipient of the 2018-19 Dame Janet Baker Masters Scholarship) and Jonty Ward both graduated from the University of York in 2019 with distinction awards for their solo performances. Gwilym Bowen is noted for his beautifully expressive performances of 18th -and early 19th- century music.
