Sondheim’s music is more than just Music Theatre and certainly
has a unique style all of its own, therein lies the challenge. How
does a classically trained singer approach and present this style
with the authenticity required from the performer for the composer?
In this presentation Morag will explore not just that singing this
repertoire is of value but how it can feed other singing styles in its
use of interpretation, ambiguity, acting skills, character study,
dramatic context, humanity, humour, playfulness, with reference to
his unique use of text, play on words and dramatic parlando.
As Sondheim himself said in Sunday in the Park with George:
“Bit by bit, putting it together
Piece by piece, only way to make a work of art.
Every moment makes a contribution,
Every little detail plays a part.
Having just the vision’s no solution,
Everything depends on execution,
Putting it together, that’s what counts.”
