Scandinavian Songs



Melbourne Art Song Collective invites you to a Scandinavian smorgasbord of fine songs.

Popular young tenor Brenton Spiteri serves up some folkloric Grieg, brooding Sibelius and a set of charming songs by the seldom-programmed Swedish composer, Wilhelm Stenhammer, evocative of the Swedish landscape and the composer’s inner world.
