Songmakers Australia: Schwanengesang

August 1 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free

Program
Franz Schubert Schwanengesang D 957

Songmakers Australia

Schubert’s last song cycle was published after his untimely death at the age of 31. It comprises songs by Ludwig Rellstab, the only 6 Heine settings by Schubert and his very last song, Die Taubenpost, a fitting message of love to all of us.

Schubert’s intentions for the publication of these songs, including the order for their performance, is not clear. Hence, Songmakers conception for a cycle after Schubert’s earlier models – a journey there and back again, traversing an emotional gamut ranging from love hopeful and/or renewed, fearful foreboding to bitter disillusionment.

Unique in the musical landscape of Australia, Songmakers Australia brings together some of the country’s leading singers and instrumentalists in a diverse repertoire comprising some of the pinnacles of chamber music.

Artists
Nicholas Dinopoulos, bass-baritone
Andrea Katz, piano

This recital is presented as part of the Melba Hall Lunch Hour Concert Series. All concerts in this series can also be streamed live via the MCM website.
