Scottish Voices

Programme:
Graham Hair: “Mediterranean Duets” (premiere)
Supported by Creative Scotland
with song-cycles by Mendelssohn, Ravel, Matyas Seiber, Nikos Skalkottas

Vocal recital by Amanda Morrison (soprano), Dorcas Owen (mezzo-soprano) and Annini Tsiouti (piano).

Songs mostly with a Greek flavour: in French translation by Ravel, in English by Matyas Seiber and in Greek by Nikkos Skalkottos. Graham Hair’s “Mediterranean Duets” set the Greek poetry of the Ancients (Sappho, Alcaeus, Anacreon) in Quasimodo’s haunting Italian versions. Plus Mendelssohn’s ravishing op 63 duets

Of the recent CD issue (on the US label Parma/Ravello) by “Scottish Voices”, including Amanda and Dorcas, reviewer Colin Clarke wrote (in “Fanfare”, the US equivalent of the British journal “The Gramophone”): “The performance is simply stunning, and Hair’s imagination seems to know no bounds.”
