Academy Song Circle

The Academy Song Circle celebrates the 200th anniversary of the birth of Clara Schumann with a recital of her complete songs.

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 including Wigmore Hall, the Austrian Cultural Forum, the Oxford Lieder Festival (all annual events), the German Embassy, the Institut Français, the Chelsea Schubert Festival, Kings Place, the Bolivar Hall, the National Gallery, the Academy’s Duke’s Hall, the David Josefowitz Recital Hall, and in private houses across London and farther afield.

Valentine’s Day is celebrated each year at the Academy with a programme of English, French, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish love songs; and there is an annual Schubertiade, given by candlelight and in 19th century costume, devoted to the songs of Franz Schubert. There have also been recitals dedicated to the songs of Beethoven, Brahms, Liszt, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Richard Strauss, Quilter, Warlock and Britten; and also to French, English and Russian Song.

Song Circle has made three CD recordings: Songs of SpringSongs of Seduction and Goethe’s Girls and Mörike’s Men.
