The passionate and exotic lives of gypsies have fired the imagination of composers for hundreds of years.
Join Songmakers Australia on a world-tour of songs inspired by a romantic view of Gypsies’ spontaneous love of music and singing.
Featuring songs by Dvořák, Brahms, De Falla, Stoltz and Busoni.
Unique in the musical landscape of Australia, Songmakers Australia brings together some of the country’s leading singers and instrumentalists in a diverse repertoire comprising some of the pinnacles of all chamber music.
Under the artistic patronage of Graham Johnson, founding director of the acclaimed London-based Songmakers Almanac, pianist Andrea Katz teams with soprano Merlyn Quaife, mezzo-soprano Sally-Anne Russell and bass-baritone Nicholas Dinopoulos in inspired programs that feature a dynamic interplay of song and chamber music.
