Product details

Something for lovers of fine vocal music and Australian music alike!

This recording is a comprehensive collection of the vocal music of Richard Peter Maddox. It bears the impramatur of the composer (playing the fantastic new Australian-designed Stuart & Sons piano), and he is joined by his talented brother Graham Maddox on oboe and Sydney-based vocalist, Samantha Smith.

This hauntingly beautiful disc features premiere recordings of Maddox's Four Songs for Soprano, the Four Archaic Songs, Letters from Armidale (text by Mary Buck), The Stranger in my Skin (text by Bruce Dawe) and his suite of five well-known Australian folksongs.

Duration: 60 min.

Liner notes include song lyrics, programme notes, and biographical notes on composer and performers.

Performers: Samantha Smith (soprano) ; Richard Peter Maddox (piano) ; Graham Maddox (oboe: Stranger in my skin).
