with pianist Christine Zerafa

Knoxville: Summer of 1915 - Samuel Barber

Two Nursery Rhymes (1921) – Arthur Bliss
'The Ragwort'
'The Daffodil'

Sieben frühe Lieder (1905-1908) – Alban Berg

Spanning between 1905 and 1947, this vocal chamber music recital of works by Barber, Bliss, and Berg identifies three different compositional languages that coexisted in America, Britain, and Germany in the first half of the twentieth century.

The picture of summer in Knoxville, Tennessee in Samuel Barber’s 1947 “lyric rhapsody,” is contrasted with the light-hearted pastoral images of 'The Ragwort' (voice clarinet and piano) 'The Daffodil' (voice & clarinet) in Arthur Bliss's Two Nursery Rhymes (1921). The recital concludes with Alban Berg’s colourful Sieben frühe Lieder (1905-1908) in a sextet arrangement by Reuben Pace for voice, piano, clarinet and strings. 

Guest Musicians:

Godfrey Mifsud - Clarinet
Nadine Galea - Violin
Stefan Calleja - Violin
Desirée Quintano - Cello
Soprano Nicola Said
