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.
This English-born composer arrived on Australian shores in the 1970s, directly from the highly pressured surroundings of the Stockhausen household. It is in Perth, the most isolated city in the world, that he reconnected with the icons of the Western canon, including cats. This expertly written cycle offers plenty of opportunities to good singers who love furry pets with attitude.
