New collaboration with the Bodeleian Library
In a new collaboration with the Bodleian Library, Oxford Lieder is
co-hosting the Albi Rosenthal Fellowship: a three-month residency at the
Bodleian, this year specifically for a composer. American composer Ross S.
Griffey has been appointed and, as well as his residency at the Bodleian
Library, in October he will lead a composition workshop at the Oxford
Lieder Festival and give a talk on his research, with some of his existing
work being heard. Following the residency, Oxford Lieder will commission a
major new cycle – based on his research in the Bodleian – to be premiered
at the 2019 Festival.

Oxford Lieder presents other events throughout the year, including a Spring
