Melbourne Recital Centre - Local Heroes Series

Merlyn Quaife, soprano

Christina Wilson, mezzo-soprano (guest artist)

Andrew Goodwin, tenor

Andrea Katz, piano

Nursery rhymes and lullabies are insightful windows into the parent-child relationship. Love and death, desires and fears are reflected in the lyrics, some of them allegoric, some outright confronting. Songs and duets by Tchaikovsky, Glinka, Mussorgsky and Kabalevsky frame the centerpiece of this program, Shostakovich’s most touching, unusual and melancholy song cycle From Jewish Folk Poetry, Op.79.

Tickets and subscriptions now on sale via the Melbourne Recital Centre website.
