We are thrilled to present Cheryl Frances-Hoadâ€™s new song cycle,Â Everything Grows Extravagantly. The cycle is a co-commission between Oxford Lieder and the Oxford Botanic Garden in celebration of their 20thÂ anniversary and the Gardenâ€™s 400th. Marcus Farnsworth, who has given numerous memorable performances at The Stoller Hall, and outstanding pianist Libby Burgess will perform songs with a horticultural twist by Finzi, Clara Schumann, Roussel, Tosti and Quilter.
