Close-Up: Amy Moore – Messiaen’s grandest song cycle of love and death
Radical 20th-century French composer Olivier Messiaen’s obsession with the transformative qualities of music and its power to connect the human soul with distant mysteries of the universe is channeled into his epic song cycle, Harawi.
Featuring Principal Artist, soprano Amy Moore, accompanied by Artistic Director, Antony Pitts, the music and the love poetry were written while Messiaen’s wife Claire Delbos was suffering from serious mental illness. Harawi is infused with an fantastical mix of Peruvian ritual, the grandest and catchiest of post-Wagnerian melodies, and a calm, deep faith in the Eternal.
Australia’s finest vocalists, the most experienced consort singers, and the next generation of emerging talent make up The Song Company’s Principal, Associate and Ensemble Artists. Join them for an incredible array of styles and repertoire in 2020 that promise to uplift and leave you catching your breath.
