The Irwin Street Collective: Handel's German Arias

Nine German Arias are rare examples of George Frideric Handel setting text in his native language. In these little-known gems, Handel brings together his noted vocal writing style from Italian opera with pious text of his contemporary Bartholdi Heinrich Brockes. The arias range in affect from despair to jubilation, with each featuring the soprano voice singing in equal partnership with a treble instrument.

UWA voice and string students and faculty will present these works in a free lunchtime concert following workshops and coaching sessions with Irwin Street Collective visiting artist, renowned Australian soprano Miriam Allan.
