Songs of Love and War
Trinity College Chapel, Parkville
Directed by Steven Hodgson with Baroque triple harp
The Consort of Melbourne presents Songs of Love and War as the fourth concert in our 2014 concert series.
Join us for this exquisite programme of Italian vocal works exploring themes of love and war. Threaded through the concert will be highlights from Monteverdi's Madrigals of war and love alongside musical gems by De Rore, Verdi, Rossini, Pizzetti and Berio that expand on the themes and images presented by the madrigals.
The Consort of Melbourne is a professional vocal ensemble that champions both historic and contemporary chamber vocal repertoire. It comprises a core membership of eight singers, which expands or shrinks as the repertoire demands.
The Consort has presented a regular concert series in the Melbourne Recital Centre for many years, and has also been invited to collaborate with groups such as Kronos Quartet, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Australian Youth Orchestra, Melbourne Youth Orchestra, the Song Company and La Compania.
