Acclaimed Australian mezzo soprano Caitlin Hulcup, revered pianist Kristian Chong, together with celebrated violist, Fiona Sargeant scale a thoughtfully curated program of compositions traversing poetic lyricism, Impressionism and the Romantic era. A meeting of unequivocal talent in the exquisite acoustics of Elisabeth Murdoch Hall.
There is no question that Caitlin Hulcup’s rich, velvety voice is the perfect vessel for the selected works composed by Brahms, Schubert, Loeffler and other key figures in poetic lyricism. Her resonant tones and depth of character create a sonic experience that is deeply moving. Paired with Kristian Chong’s gentle agility, dynamic range and affinity for collaboration and Fiona Sargeant’s meticulous playing style and rich experience this performance is set to be truly unmissable.
