Songs Original, Songs Re-Imagined
Tuesday 19 March 2.30pm
Carole Nash Recital Room
Programme to include:
Charles Ives Tom Sails Away; Memories A and B
Olivier Messiaen Trois mélodies
Alban Berg Vier Lieder Op 2
Join us for a recital given by students from the RNCM that showcases experimentation in song. The programme will include Berg’s Vier Lieder Op 2 which marked a tonal shift in the 20th century musical landscape. In Trois mélodies we hear the original and colourful thoughts of a young Messiaen, and the enigmatic and experimental American composer Charles Ives is represented by some of his most charming and original songs. A number of exciting new songs by RNCM composers will also feature, as well as creative re-imaginings of some popular tunes we already know.
