My favourite Australian art song repertoire
Posted by Australian Music Centre on 15 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.
Each of the five songs in At Telegraph Bay challenges the singer and pianist to express different tonal aspects present in the music. The rippling trill feature in the piano accompaniment of ‘At Night’, creating a ‘wash’ of sound, can disorient the singer, who will need to become accustomed to the sounds playing at the same time as him. The motifs in the both the vocal and piano lines of the second song, ‘Something in the Air’ evoke a sense of water and landscape.
