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.
A daring, difficult, rich, erotic and beautiful piece that drenches musician and listener alike in a cascade of utterly decadent imagery. It's gorgeous.
