ANAM Recitals enable each ANAM musician to make their own personal musical statement, through performance, repertoire and presentation.
Meditations and metamorphoses - a dreamy, surrealistic recital inspired by poetry.
My final Master's recital is the culmination of my research into Strauss' Metamorphosen, a beautifully troubled work written at the close of the Second World War. It is paired here with NZ composer Jack Body's Meditations on Michelangelo, where each movement is inspired by one of Michelangelo's sonnets.
