Harriet Burns and Lotte Betts Dean to perform in Oxford International Song Festival

Two CMF Artists, Harriet Burns and Lotte Betts Dean, will perform at Oxford International Song Festival.

Anna Cavaliero – Voice Electric

Lotte Betts-Dean is fast establishing herself as one of today’s most creative and exciting voices. Together with video artist Purple Taiko, Lotte developed this show for solo voice, electronics and vintage CRT monitors for Britten Pears Arts’ Festival of New last year. VOICE ELECTRIC includes groundbreaking works by Luigi Nono and Kurt Schwitters alongside newer works by Kaija Saariaho, Erin Gee, Stuart MacRae and Mathis Saunier. Using analogue processing and effects to create a visual collage of lo-fi imagery, textures and colour, Purple Taiko’s visuals complete a thrilling evening.

Harriet Burns – The Mendelssohns

Both Fanny and Felix Mendelssohn wrote a plethora of sumptuous songs. This lunchtime concert, leading on from this morning’s look at manuscripts and paintings, illuminates the sometimes complex relationship between the siblings, and features some of their finest and most personal works.

The Artists Pianist Eugene Asti is well known to festival audiences as ‘a model partner, commentator and animator’ (Gramophone). He’s joined by two former Oxford Song Young Artists, soprano Harriet Burns and tenor Alessandro Fisher, both now enjoying soaring careers.
