I went to a student vocal recital tonight. Not the sort of thing I usually go to, but it was fun. I especially liked the two Samuel Barber songs, on excerpts from Ulysses
and Finnegan's Wake
. I had heard the one called Nuvoletta
a couple of years ago in a music class, but it was neat to hear it again after having actually read some Joyce. That's a great song. The last song of the program was Frühlingsstimmen
, which was interesting because I'm so used to dancing to the orchestral version of it.
