14 & 15 May, Blackheath.
For two performances, Gerald Finzi’s song cycle setting ballads from Shakespeare’s plays will be incorporated with other lyrical vocal works from the past century.
“In three of the most beautiful song cycles of the early 20th century, Pilgrimage will take you from the wild isolation of medieval Irish monks, through the red beating heart of Spain and, on the 400th anniversary of his death, through the varied minds of Shakespeare, with a moment to stop and gaze at the moon in Debussy’s Clair de Lune.”
- Barber’s Hermit Songs
- De Falla’s Siete Canciones Populares
- Finzi’s Let Us Garlands Bring
Sung by Susannah Lawergren (Soprano), Hannah Fraser (Mezzo-Soprano) and Andrew O’Connor (Bass-Baritone) with pianist Ben Burton and Debussy’s Clair de Lune.
May 14th, 3pm at Blackheath Uniting Church
May 15th, 3pm at the Flute Tree, Leichhardt
