Christopher Watson + Calvin Bowman: Finzi & Bowman
28 February @ 18:00 - 19:00$29 – $40
Art song is created through a thoughtful marriage of poetry and music. It appeals to lovers of chamber music, literature and those who can appreciate the lyrical impulse which has inspired composers like Gerald Finzi and Calvin Bowman to make art song a central focus of their output. This radiant song recital presents two rare opportunities – to hear celebrated Australian vocal music composer Bowman perform his own music, and to hear an English tenor singing some of the finest English art song of the 20th century. Profound themes of nature and loss are traversed through Finzi’s complete cycle to poetry by Thomas Hardy, and a varied selection of much-admired songs by Bowman.
