Songs and Arias for Soprano and Piano

Songs and Arias for Soprano and Piano

Series: Music Sales America Publisher: Music Sales America Composer: Michael Nyman

Sixteen songs and seven arias for high voice and Piano, composed over a fifteen-year period from 1989 to 2004, with texts in English, French, German and translations from German, Portuguese and Russian. Texts from the Bible, Shakespeare, Mozart, Rimbaud, Fernando Pessoa and Paul Celan and by living writers Roger Pulvers, Kevin Power, Victoria Hardie and Michael Hastings. While the original text-free version of Life's Chaos appeared as part of the musical accompaniment to Dziga Vertov's Man With A Movie Camera, there are songs from three of his film scores: The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover, Prospero's Books and The Diary Of Anne Frank, and from four song cycles: L'Orgie Parisienne, Six Celan Songs, Cycle of Disquietude and Acts Of Beauty. There are arias from two stage operas, Facing Goya and Man and Boy: Dada and a TV opera, Letters, Riddles and Writs.
