From melancholy Baroque to romatic art song and more
‘Ambient piano pieces laced with wonderfully intricate melancholy.’ Newcastle Live
The songs in this concert reflect the preoccupation so much music has with the idea of loneliness, the traveller, the introspection of solitude. The repertoire spans several centuries beginning with the melancholy baroque music of Purcell, a selection of emotive romantic art song, as well as an interpolation of contemporary composition written by Rosie Riebl, which weave the poetry of Blake and draw from the combination of strangeness, purity and existentialism within the program.
Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre and Max & Rosie Riebl
