My favourite Australian art song repertoire
Posted by Australian Music Centre on 22 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.
Song 5 An exultant song with well set upper register notes at the climax of phrases. The text is by Blake, the setting has a rhythmical driving minimalistic piano part that allows the singer to soar over the top in broad spanning lines. Many rising fourths and fifths that keep the texture open. A joy to sing, you need a brilliant pianist as the piano part is demanding.
