Queensland Conservatorium presents "To the Evening Star" and "Dead Songs". Performers - Margaret Schindler (soprano), Floyd Williams (clarinet), Patrick Murphy (cello) and Stephen Emmerson (piano). This recital will present two song cycles by leading Australian composer Andrew Schultz. The first, entitled To the Evening Star, was composed last year for Margaret Schindler and Stephen Emmerson, and won several awards including the 2009 Paul Lowin Award. The judges of that award noted its "mastery of technique and form ... The composer knows how to make five simple songs into a well-timed, natural and sometimes surprising musical statement, and combines creativity and craft to produce a work of sincerity and musicality". The second cycle in the programme is among the composer's most striking and impressive works, the acclaimed Dead Songs from 1993 for soprano, clarinet, cello and piano. According to one writer Dead Songs "is a work of art of a high order, adroitly shaped to lead to an ending of universal resonance." (Roger Covell, SMH) .

Programme:
Dead songs : for soprano voice, clarinet in B flat, cello and piano (1991) by Andrew Schultz
To the evening star : five songs for soprano and piano (2009) by Andrew Schultz
