Barcan + Green: Kouvaras & Abbott
Sun 12 June @ 14:00 - 15:30$25 – $35
Mezzo-soprano: Linda Barcan
Piano: Coady Green
This program pairs two major song cycles by Melbourne-based composers Linda Kouvaras and Katy Abbott, Art and Life and The Domestic Sublime, with a selection of their solo piano repertoire. Abbott and Kouvaras have gifted us with innovative, engaging, and powerful settings of poetry by Chris Wallace Crabbe, Diane Fahey, Bronwyn Bartal and Kouvaras herself. Mezzo-soprano Linda Barcan and pianist Coady Green give voice to words and music that wittily and movingly captures key life moments, from making the bed to mourning lost love, from a gentle lullaby to unjust imprisonment.
