Seeing Stars

Last Thursday’s rehearsal focused on Granados’ Song of the Stars. The choral score is intimidating at first sight (three choirs and sub-divisions within each voice), but it made a lot more sense once we had sung it through a few times.

The piano part at the concerts will be played by Carolina Estrada, who is researching Granados’ lesser known works at the Sydney Conservatorium.  She came to give a flavour of the piano part, and to assist our pronunciation of the Catalan text.

Thank you to Choir member Linde Macpherson for sourcing more information on the piece and a translation of the text.
