The Song Company: Fire of Love
- Date: Thursday, 27 February 2014, 7pm
- Venue: Newcastle Conservatorium Concert Hall — The University of Newcastle, Cnr Auckland St and Gibson St, Newcastle, NSW
The 'Fire of Love' explores the nature of love across the ages. Fire, perhaps the most powerful of all elements, signifies heat, purification and change. Young love, sweet love, old love, any kind of love is worth a song or two. From the courtly romance of the troubadours to the sensuous madrigal musings of Marenzio, this concert explores the fire of emotion stretching all the way to the classic songs of Jacques Brel and Cole Porter. And some recent but equally poignant love songs by Bon Iver and Pink prove our point: love is eternal.
