MCO: French Arias

  • DEAKIN EDGE FEDERATION SQUARE (map)

Described by ABC Classic FM as “one of the foremost sopranos of her generation,” Greta Bradman’s luminescent soprano is the ideal vehicle for lush songs by Debussy. It’s also the inspiration for new songs by Australia’s leading composer of music for voice, Calvin Bowman.

The second half of the nineteenth century saw an extraordinary flowering in French music. Composers including Chausson, Debussy and Fauré transported audiences to previously unimagined worlds of sound, mysterious in their beauty and subtle charm. For this concert, we bring to life exquisite new arrangements of this iconic music, including Debussy’s Clair de lune and Chausson’s Poème.

This concert will tour Victoria, supported by the Victorian Government through Touring Victoria and Regional Arts Victoria.
