Thrilled that the recording of Andrew Anderson’s Ink Black Ink received the following review in Limelight magazine! Congratulations Andrew.
It’s been a long time between drinks here at alexandramathew.com, but fear not: life has been busy and there are exciting things on the horizon! Aside from submitting my Master’s thesis (hooray!), I recently had the privilege of performing in BBC Planet Earth II Live at the Melbourne Convention Centre, alongside the Melbourne Pops Orchestra and Eric Bana. Scroll down for a little video highlight… What an amazing and wonderful event.
Coming up in July, soprano Jenna Roubos and I will be performing in the Melbourne International Festival of Lieder and Art Song (MIFLAS)from 7 to 13 July, for which we will participate in master classes with Graham Johnson and Stephen Varcoe. While we will miss singing with pianist Georgina Lewis (who will be busy taking Latvia by storm), we can’t wait to join forces with pianist Julia Hastings. Watch this space for more information! We were also thrilled to be finalists for the MIFLAS MCM Scholarship.
Looking forward to heading to Wangaratta Cathedral next weekend with Jenna and Georgina to perform our ‘Summer Sunsets’ program! See below for details… x
Thank you to everyone who came along to the Trio Lorelei concert at Montsalvat this past Sunday! Jenna, Georgina and I have so enjoyed our time performing in that magnificent venue. For those of you who missed the concert, here’s some feedback from one of our audience members:
Such a lovely program and beautifully sung and played. It was well worth the trek out to Montsalvat. Your voices are well matched in tone – warm and harmonious … Among a program of well-known classics, I was thrilled to discover an unfamiliar (to me anyway) work that has such quiet impact – Dunhill’s “The Cloths of Heaven”. Gorgeous!
We hope to be back at Montsalvat sometime in the near future. Next stop, Wangaratta!
2018 is off to a great start, with news, reviews, and recordings. My first performance of the year—Handel’s Lucrezia at the Peninsula Summer Music Festival—received this review in Weekend Notes. In all, it was an enjoyable evening, and I loved performing alongside fantastic musicians in the beautiful surrounds of beachside Flinders.
It was over a year ago now that I recorded Andrew Anderson’s song cycle In Black Ink, and the recording is finally available to purchase online through Andrew’s website. Listen to some previews here, or stream on Spotify.
Next up: I’m performing with Trio Lorelei at Montsalvat on Sunday 11 February… Watch this space for more details!
