Event Details

A program of delicate, deep and profoundly beautiful music for piano and voice. An undercurrent of the poignant and melancholic. This program illuminates the power of the understated, through the lyrical soundworld of French artsong, American 20th century song and Australian song.

The program showcases George Crumb's awe-inspiring 'Apparition' and also includes a new and breathtaking song cycle by Ross Edwards with Judith Wright texts, based around elements from Edward's third Symphony "Earth Spirit Songs", which Greta presented with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra in 2010. Other gems on the program include French composers Reynaldo Hahn's A Chloris and L'heure Exquise, Ernest Chausson's plaintive Les Heures, and American composer Robert Beaser's reflective Old Men Admiring Themselves in the Water.

"with Bradman´s gorgeous voice soaring rapturously, her performance was superb - the music, exquisitely sung" - The Advertiser

Featured non-Australian music: Hahn, Fauré, Saint Saens, Chausson, Crumb, Beaser.
