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.

Well contrasted settings, well written for piano. Moderate musical and technical challenge.
Rowena Cowley
On a completely different scale, Butterley's early work, To the Evening Star from Six Blake Songs for voice and piano, is a beautiful serene night song which I would recommend including in more mainstream recitals.
