Product Description

Voyage to Canada is an exploration of Canadian song repertoire with a focus on art song of the late 20th century. This recording includes works that represent Canada’s varied and vibrant musical aesthetic. From Elizabeth Raum’s languid seduction of a stranger in “T.S.” to John Beckwith’s reimagining of Margaret Laurence in Stacey, the intimate connection of text and music create an immediacy of character and an innate sense of place. This journey through some of Canada’s most effective song repertoire provides a practical and engaging addition to this country’s song archive.
An artist equally at home in concert, opera and music theatre repertoire, Caroline Schiller has participated in the creation and performance of opera and concert works with The Banff Centre, The Tanglewood Music Center, The Ottawa International Chamber Music Festival, The Dartington International Institute, and The Indian River Festival. Of her concert and theatre work, highlights include the American premiere of Alexander Goehr’s Sing Ariel with the Boston Symphony Chamber Players and her performances in the role of Christine in the original Toronto cast of Phantom of the Opera. Recent releases include “Great Britain Triumphant!” a recording of 18th-century English cantatas with the baroque ensemble, Capella Savaria conducted by Mary Térey-Smith and released by Centaur. She is Associate Professor of Voice and director of Opera at Memorial University of Newfoundland. Recitalist, adjudicator and presenter, her doctoral thesis is an annotated bibliography entitled A Performer’s Guide to Works for Soprano Voice by Canadian Women Composers.
