Our next recital at the Sydney Conservatorium! Russian Art Song: From Traditional To Prokofiev. Free
In recent decades we have seen an increased number of publications on Russian vocal music for non-Russian-speaking singers. However, they mostly deal with a very limited number of late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century composers, while earlier periods of Russian vocal music are hardly known in the West. It is also widely believed that Russian songs require a high degree of professionalism from a singer, so this repertoire should be explored later in the career.
In this recital we are going to perform a range of music from Russian folk songs to twentieth-century repertoire, including compositions by Glinka, Alyabyev, Gurilyov, Varlamov, Veretovsky, Mussorgsky, Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Rachmaninoff and Prokofiev.
The program includes songs of different levels of difficulty, from beginner to advanced; some of them will be performed by children from seven to twelve years of age.
Featuring vocalists Natalia Melnik, Wendy Dixon, Andrea Quaglia, Lisa Munckton, Olivia Morberger, Claudia Jelic, Svetlana Rotenko, Veronica Broustinov, Jocelyn Phillips and Gabriel Gitman, and pianist Eun-Jung Byun.
