Vivien Hamilton, Soprano. Mardi McSullea, Flute. Len Vorster, Piano.
In this recital Vivien Hamilton, Mardi McSullea and Len Vorster present - in six ‘degustation’ size courses - a program of French musical delicacies which were composed, in part, as reaction to the harshness encountered by a Europe battered by the attrocities of World War 1. ‘Six Degrees of Separation’ is a program which is influenced by a combination of Surréalism, Sensualitié and Sentimentalité and consists of songs which are suitable for the French concert hall, but influenced by ragtime, baroque music, jazz and the smokey cabaret of 1920’s Paris.
