Oxford Chamber Music Festival

Songs of Freedom

Dedicated to the memory of very dear friends and great music lovers - most generous and always steadfast in their support of the festival - Sir Oliver and Lady Phoebe Scott

Tickets £30

Alice Zawadzki is a vocalist, violinist, songwriter and composer loosely connected to the jazz scene but described as “a genuine original” by The Guardian. With bassist, improviser and composer Misha Mullov-Abbado she has recorded her latest album for new-music label ECM, and here they explore Sephardic and Mediterranean songs of freedom. Dvořák’s exuberant piano quintet, filled with life and colour, centres on a gorgeous dumka – a form based on the epic ballads written to demand national freedom for nineteenth-century Ukraine.

Sephardic and Mediterranean songs for voice, violin and bass

Dvořák Piano quintet in A major, op81

Alice Zawadzki, Misha Mullov-Abbado, Heini Kärkkäinen, Priya Mitchell, Tetiana Lutsyk, Sascha Bota and Julian Arp.
