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.
It has to be said that this delectable work is the musical equivalent of sinking into a warm bath, however from the singers' point of view the vocal lines must be massaged into being with sweet intonation and perfect balance between voices. Listeners will detect a distinctly feminine flavour in the way the ensemble is put together, from the lush patterns of the harp to the interwoven, sensual movement of the voices together. Divine to sing and to hear.
