Soprano Rebecca MacCallion joins Guitar Trek's Bradley Kunda to
celebrate the combined beauty of the voice and the guitar. The
two made their ensemble debut in ABC Classic FM's Sunday Live
series, and have since been invited to share their unique
programs with audiences across Australia, Spain, Montenegro and
Italy. Together, they are rejuvenating the repertoire for guitar
and voice with significant new arrangements and compositions.
Their debut CD includes arrangements of two song cycles by Rodrigo and Ravel, alongside two classic favourites: Schubert's Standchen "Leise flehen meine Leider", and the Irish folksong Down by the salley gardens. A major feature on this CD is a new song cycle Bradley was commissioned to write using the poetry of Henry Lawson. Celebrating the 150th anniversary of Lawson's birth, this work is a significant addition to the repertoire for voice and guitar, and is set in the Romantic musical style of Lawson's time.
