Academy Song Circle is delighted to celebrate the Royal Academy of Music’s bicentenary with a recital focussing on Schubert Lieder composed in 1822, including such masterpieces as Der Musensohn (The son of the muses), Willkommen und Abschied (Welcome and Farewell), An die Leier (To my lyre), Der Zwerg (The Dwarf), Nacht und Träume (Night and Dreams), Wehmut (Melancholy) and Sei mir gegrüßt (I greet you).

Each year a small group of the Royal Academy of Music’s most accomplished performers of the song repertoire are selected to form the Academy Song Circle. Since its inception in 2004, Song Circle has given over 50 concerts in venues across London and farther afield.
