My favourite Australian art song repertoire
Posted by Australian Music Centre on 15 July, 2013
The AMC asked leading practitioners to select their favourite Australian art song repertoire, to provide delegates to the 2013 International Conference of Vocal Teachers (Brisbane 2013) with an introduction to this rich and diverse landscape.
Mastering rhythmical and textual challenges in the ensemble of I’m nobody’ is paramount in being able to achieve a believable performance of this difficult, cheeky, ‘quirky’ song. The composer describes its tonality as being ‘purposefully astringent’, referring to the atonal melody that ‘clashes’ with the accompaniment.
