Work on the songs of Mozart and Schumann, with a particular focus on language, appreciation of the text, style and presentation. Mozart wrote a wide variety of songs as well as his operas; they are diverse in character, from simpler strophic forms to the more extended and serious in nature.

Varying in their language, most are in German, but he also set French and Italian texts. Prepare any Mozart songs, alongside songs from Schumann’s Liederkreis op 39, Dichterliebe or Frauenliebe und -Leben cycles
