London Song Festival 2017  

"Circles, Cycles and Revolutions”

2017 marks the 10th anniversary of the London Song Festival, and to celebrate this milestone we are putting on the biggest Festival yet, with 11 concerts under the heading "Circles, Cycles and Revolutions”. We are programming all the great iconic song-cycles of the Lieder repertoire by Schubert and Schumann, which form the heart and core of the Song repertoire, and at the same time we are celebrating and commemorating several important revolutions that took place during the twentieth century by marking the 50th anniversary of the (partial) decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales, the centenary of the Russian Revolution, and the Civil Rights revolution as manifested in art-songs written by black British and American composers.
