COMPOSERS & POETS SHOWCASE

27th April 2019 - 5:00 pm - 6:45 pm
3 Quarry Hill
Leeds, LS2 7PD United Kingdom

Our Composers and Poets programme has been a cornerstone of the Leeds Lieder Festival from the very beginning, and has featured luminaries such as South-Yorkshire born poet Ian McMillan.

Robert Schumann, one of our featured composers this year, wrote “Sometimes it seems as though I am embarking on completely new paths in music” and this showcase promises to be an unpredictable and fascinating concert, which may well point out new directions for art song.
