In a restaurant overlooking Vicenza I ordered a prime porterhouse steak. It was grilled over a wood fire, served on a white plate and accompanied by a slice of lemon. It was the best steak I have ever eaten. If it had been served in a French restaurant, it probably would have been covered in one of many traditional sauces. But no sauce. This was the best meat cooked to perfection.
When I put together a program for the Australian Chamber Choir, the aim is to present it in a way that captures as closely as possible the essence of the composer’s intention. The music should speak for itself. I want the finest music, presented without fuss or distraction – or sauce!
TRUE ROMANTICS presents some of the most inspiring and uplifting choral music by Elgar, Brahms, Monteverdi, Barber and Ravel.
