Art Song Perth’s opening recital for the 2017 season will include songs by Rossini, Fauré, Delibes, Schumann, Vaughan Williams, Poulenc and Satie.
This programme will be a musical feast for lovers of art song.
The sweet melancholy songs of Fauré, seductive songs of Rossini, Schumann’s beautiful melodies, in solos and duets.
And the powerful Vaughan Williams Mystical Songs contrast with the quirky humour of Francis Poulenc and Erik Satie.
Jennifer Barrington is our featured artist in this recital.
Jennifer has appeared as a soloist with West Australian Opera, the West Australian Symphony Orchestra, and will shortly be embarking on a recital tour in Italy.
Lachlann Lawton was a prize winner in the 2015 Evelyn and Ralph Thompson Scholarship, and Belinda Cox was a prize winner in the 2016 Scholarship.
Baritone Theodore Murphy-Jelley is a promising young singer of whom we will undoubtedly hear more in years to come.
All of the singers will be accompanied by Tommaso Pollio.
