Schubert's birthday Schubertiade

Celebrate Schubert's birthday with a Schubertiade where the performers will be in early 19th costume! This is perfectly reasonable because the Schubertiades Schubert took part in were private, intimate affairs involving friends. It's good for young musicians to get the atmosphere.

On Monday 3/2, The Academy Song Circle presents a Schubertiade at the David Josefowitz Recital Hall at the Royal Academy of Music, Marylebone Road, London NW1. The singers are Sofia Larsson, Tahirah Osborne, Gwilym Bowen and Bozidar Smiljanic. The pianists are Freddie Brown and Yi-Ru Hung. Enjoy!

Schubert's actual birthday (January 31st)  falls this year on Chinese New Year's Day. There's a recital at the Wigmore Hall but for songs, go to the RAM .
