My favourite Australian art song repertoire

Posted by Australian Music Centre on 22 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.
Romantic and strange. This piece does a beautiful job of placing us in the rather surreal landscape of Lorca in love.
Jane Sheldon
Described as a journey of love's soul from light to darkness, Sonetos del amor oscuro (Sonnets of Dark Love) is Page's setting of sonnets that remained largely unknown and unpublished for 50 years. It is a mature and deeply soulful cycle, demanding great stamina and breadth of emotional expression. Tension builds throughout the piece until the final movement where the singer must unleash everything emotionally, yet end on a sustained lamenting high note. A work of extremes, from sensual radiance to despair in both the musical landscape and the vocal line itself.
