Sheet Music: Score
Love Stories : a song collection for baritone and piano / music: Ross Fiddes ; words: John Shaw Neilson.
by Ross Fiddes (2017)
The 7 songs are set to poems by Australian poet John Shaw Neilson. The words are romantic, wry, loving, contemplative, metaphorical, amusing, reflective. The music seeks to encapsulate the mood of the words in a structure where the singer is not so much accompanied, but is part of the musical fabric.
