The Schubert Project's lunchtime series is packed with amazing music performed by internationally-acclaimed artists. Here's a summary:
13 Oct: Kate Royal and Malcolm Martineau, two great stars of the song world, are joined by Manuel Walser, winner of last year's hugely prestigious 'Das Lied' competition in Berlin. An amazing start to this series.
14 Oct: Anna Dennis, Nicholas Mulroy and John Reid bring together poets who may be little known today but were important influences on Schubert.
15 Oct: Ciara Hendrick and Maciek O'Shea, with Oxford Lieder's artistic director Sholto Kynoch, perform Schubert's settings of two of his close friends.
16 Oct: Raphaela Papadakis, Martin HÃ¤ÃŸler and Sholto Kynoch perform the Therese Grob songbook, a collection of songs dedicated by Schubert to his first love and full of gems.
17 Oct: Acclaimed pianist and period-performance expert David Owen-Norris brings a star team of singers and an 1828 Broadwood to perform the 'Kosegarten Liederspiel', a cycle by Schubert that was only 'discovered' in recent years.
20 Oct: Robert Murray, Jonathan McGovern & James Baillieu in settings of two poets - Schiller and HÃ¶lty - to whom Schubert frequently turned. This concert will be recorded for broadcast by BBC Radio 3.
21 Oct: Roderick Williams, fresh from his triumph at the Last Night of the Proms, performs the Rellstab settings from 'Schwanengesang'.
23 Oct: Stephanie Marshall, replacing Luke D. Williams, sings the settings of Jacobi, while Christopher Glynn and Bengt Forsberg play the wonderful Grand Duo for piano, D812. This is preceded by a free talk given by Natasha Loges, with the manuscript of the Grand Duo on display.
24 Oct: Members of the prestigious National Opera Studio perform songs with one foot in the theatre, including the favourites 'Lied der Delphine' and 'Lied des Florio', taken from the SchÃ¼tz play 'Lacrimas', a contemporary hit.
27 Oct: Three leading Scandinavian artists, with acclaimed pianist Matti Hirvonen at the helm, perform thrillingly dramatic settings of Schiller.
28 Oct: Maximillian Schmitt, one of the most exciting young tenors in Europe today, and world-renowned pianist Justus Zeyen, in a programme including Beethoven's 'An die ferne Geliebte', the 'original' song cycle and an inspiration for Schubert.
29 Oct: Malin Christensson, Joshua Ellicott and Simon Lepper give a programme that includes some of Schubert's most popular settings of Goethe, including 'HeidenrÃ¶slein'.
30 Oct: Tenor Charles Daniels makes his much anticipated first appearance for Oxford Lieder, in a programme of 'Schubert's Circle' that includes some of his most touching and personal songs.
31 Oct: As the Festival draws to a close, Daniel Norman, Anna Dennis and Andrew West present a fascinating programme - including the Festival's only performance of 'ErlkÃ¶nig' - featuring new translations of famous Goethe poems set to music by emerging composers and heard alongside Schubert's own settings.
