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.
The book by Patrick White is arguably the most poignant and tormented incarnation of Australia's colonial narrative. Any dreams or hopes about the inland sea or an undiscovered garden of Eden were shattered with the death of its explorer. Laura's Aria is an ecstatic piece of musical lyricism, the romantic dream of an English mind.
