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.
A group of miniatures using a wide variety of short poems and texts by eclectic poets. Very effective text settings that are vocally well written and satisfying to perform.
