William’s final recital at the Royal Academy of Music will exhibit different examples of sets and song cycles from a variety of time periods and styles. As part of William’s Song reCycle project, he has been fascinated by the role of the composer and performer in presenting songs for performances (the subject of his forthcoming MMus dissertation).
Composers do this work by occasionally creating groupings of song that could be performed together, Song Cycles.
Performers do this work by creating sets of songs or entire concert programs that must provide variety and maintain interest for the audience.
In this recital, William will explore both sides of this collaboration with a set of Italian Arie Antiche, song cycles by Faure and Britten, and a new Song reCycle epilogue to Vaughan Williams’ Songs of Travel, “After Travel”.
