Event Details

Halcyon presents Giving Voice

The cry of a newborn, the first word spoken after a long silence, the energy of many voices heard as one ... as individuals, we are compelled to give voice to our thoughts from the moment we first utter a sound. A composer, driven mad by this urge, might seek to reveal not only the power of music and language, but the essence of his or her own unique and mature ‘voice’. The three works of David Lumsdaine, Elliott Gyger and Nigel Butterley in this program are by composers at the height of their writing powers. All three are drawn to vocal writing and all have found their voice through the setting of poetry to music.

Performers: Matthew Wood conductor, Alison Morgan soprano, Jenny Duck-Chong mezzo soprano, Sally Walker flute/piccolo, Peter Smith clarinet, Alexandre Oguey oboe/cor anglais, Giuseppe Zangari guitar, Victoria Gilmovich violin, James Wannan viola, Geoffrey Gartner cello
