CD release – Chamber Songs of Andrew Schultz

Halcyon’s new CD This Moment Must Be Sung will be released by Tall Poppies on May 1. The CD showcases recent vocal works by Andrew Schultz and features three substantial song cycles:

To the Evening Star (winner of the 2009 Paul Lowin Song Cycle prize) for soprano and piano
I am writing in this book for soprano, mezzo-soprano, cello, double bass, percussion, harp and piano
Paradise for soprano, cello and piano (runner-up in the 2016 Lowin prize);

and three shorter works:

Lake Moonrise for mezzo-soprano, bass clarinet, cello and percussion (from our Kingfisher project)
I am Black for soprano and piano
Dark Chair for soprano, mezzo-soprano, clarinet, double bass and percussion

You can read program notes for the pieces here and reviews of some of the works here

Andrew’s music has featured in many Halcyon programs over the years and we have great memories of developing I am writing in this book at the Musician’s Cottage during a Bundanon residency with him in 2011 as he got to know our us and our voices even better in that beautiful natural surrounding amidst the wombats, birds and occasional cattle.
