Liederspiel — Who We Are

“Liederspiel” is an experimental channel for discussing music and literature. Anhad Arora, a doctoral student in Music, and Henrike Lähnemann, Professor of Medieval German at Oxford, explore Medievalist and Orientalist themes in Lieder, unlocking the rich musical, literary and cultural background of the medium through informal performance and conversation.

Our “Liederspiel” is named after the Romantic parlour game of dramatic song presentations in a narrative setting which was the original setting for Wilhelm Müller’s songs on which Schubert’s song cycles “Die schöne Müllerin” and “Winterreise” are based.
