Product details

Elizabeth Campbell has long been a tireless promoter of Australian art song. Together with Tony Fogg, back in the 80s, she presented a series of recitals devoted to this genre (From Nathan To Now). Two decades later she is committing some of this energy and expertise to a recording of songs that set the poetry of Australia's most loved poet, Judith Wright. The repertoire ranges from a song cycle by Margaret Sutherland, to a beautiful new cycle by Richard Mills (specially commissioned for this recording), to Ross Edwards' wonderfully evocative The Lost Man from his 2nd Symphony, and Moya Henderson's intriguing quartet arrangement of Woman's Song in which Ms Campbell sings all four parts. There is also Sutherland's setting of The World and the Child, for voice with string trio, and Ian Munro's own settings of two poems.

This is a landmark recording by one of Australia's favourite singers, together with the ever versatile Ian Munro at the piano, and a significant addition to the recorded repertoire. It was made possible by funding from the Music Fund of the Australia Council and a significant private donation.

Duration: 67 min.
