Contralto Anna Larsson will
be singing music by Gustav Mahler with the Shenandoah Conservatory Symphony Orchestra this Friday. Earlier this week, she and I spoke over the phone about
Mahler’s music and her approach to singing it, with a little digression on
vocal range and personality.
I loved hearing her insights
into the music, so I hope you enjoy listening to the interview, which is
about 15 minutes long:
Can you hear the students
practicing in the background? Perhaps that’s a clarinetist somewhere nearby
running through scales? I hope it’s not too distracting; I think it’s an
exciting reminder of all the energy that goes into bringing together a musical
performance. It also makes me think of Performance Today’s new series about the art of practicing, which you can check out on their website.
