Premiere of new song cycle at Oxford Lieder Festival, performed by soprano Samantha Crawford and the project’s Artistic Director, pianist Lana Bode.
dream.risk.sing is a brilliantly conceived programme that elevates the voices of modern women, telling stories that are not traditionally related in song. It includes the world premiere of a new song cycle by composer Charlotte Bray and poet Nicki Jackowska, Crossing Faultlines, exploring women’s professional experiences of mentorship, discrimination and ambition. The concert also features new arrangements of songs from Judith Weir’s orchestral song cycle woman.life.song, originally commissioned and premiered by Jessye Norman at Carnegie Hall, as well as works by Helen Grime and Michele Brourman.
