Leading German bass-baritone Stephan Loges launches SongEasel’s Quintessential Song series in collaboration with acclaimed pianist and curator Jocelyn Freeman.

Their programme presents some supreme items from the song genre by Johannes Brahms alongside works by five composers who inspired or were inspired by this Lieder giant: Robert and Clara Schumann, Marie von Kehler, Ethel Smyth and Gustav Jenner.

Part of SongEasel’s Quintessential song series celebrating their fifth birthday. The series pays homage to both sacred and secular origins of the song genre, and features works for not one, but five accompanists (piano plus string quartet), in a range of recitals across South East London April-July 2023.
