Personal Biography

Born in North Wales, Ceri Owen received both her BA and D.Phil in Music from Magdalen College, Oxford, where she was appointed a Stipendiary Lecturer in Music. She read for an MPhil in Musicology at Clare College, Cambridge. Her research is concerned with late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century British music and musical culture, and with the European art song tradition, with particular interests in music and landscape, music and nationalism, and performance cultures. Her JRF project is a study of early twentieth-century English art song and art song performance.

She is also active as a pianist and song accompanist, and trained at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London, becoming a Fellow and Tutor at the School in 2014. She is currently preparing a recording of art songs by composers active in early twentieth-century England.
