On July 12 (Canberra) and July 14 (Sydney) I will be performing in recital with Anna Rutkowska-Schock (Hourglass Ensemble) in a program that centres around Richard Rodney Bennett’s Songs Before Sleep and other works that deal with fables, dreamscapes, nightscapes, and childhood. Featured composers include Robert Schumann, Franz Schubert, Ivor Gurney, Eric Whitacre, and Iain Grandage.
From The Song Company website:
This new intimate mini-series, SongCo Solo, gives you the chance to hear individual singers from The Song Company as soloists. For each concert, one or two of them will curate a programme of their favourite art songs or chamber music, guiding you through their own personal vocal journey, and partnering with some world-class guest artists.
