At 7:30pm on the 8th of February, 2014, a graduate voice recital was presented featuring works covering several time periods and languages. It was given in the room 101 Recital Hall of the University of Florida Music Building. The recital began with “E pur cosí un giorno . . . Piangeró la sorte mia,” one of Cleopatra’s famous arias from George Friedric Handel’s opera, Giulio Cesare in Egitto. It continued with three German Lied by Richard Strauss: “Ständchen,” “Morgen,” and “Kling!” Concluding the first half was a bel canto aria “Ah tardai troppo . . . O luce di quest’anima,” from Gaetano Donzetti’s Linda di Chamounix. The second half consisted of two song sets: Claude Debussy’s Quatre Chansons de jeunesse and Robert L. Morris’ Lyric Suite: Spirituals in a Gospel Style. Along with a variety of styles, the repertoire explored different aspects of vocal technique, including breath management, agility, and vowel formation. A solid technique was required to allow freedom of expression to artistically fit the mood of each piece. ( en )
