Message from Brian MacKay
This workshop will not require pre-preparation, we will be working on short pieces and excerpts, which we can learn on the day. The emphasis will be on demystifying the challenges of singing in Russian. In the process we will delve in some detail into the “Russianess” of Russian music and look at how poetry, language and translations affect musical colour and meaning.
To give you an idea of what we will be working on, we will be uploading some excerpts here but you do not need to bring any printed music with you, we will have anything you need ready for you at the workshop.
