There is just one week left to enter our fabulous competition to win tickets for Roderick Williams and Julius Drake's recital on 14 November, when they will be performing Brahms's only song cycle Die schöne Magelone in the historic Temple Church. The cycle sets 15 poems from a novella by Ludwig Tieck, loosely based on a medieval story of courtly love, the poems inspired Brahms to created some of his most intense love songs. We don't get to hear the work often enough and Williams performance promises to be a notable occasion.

Make sure you enter before the competition closes at midnight on 26 October, see our competition page for full details of how to enter.
