The idea for Arie Nuove came from working with singing students who wanted to sing in Italian but with a familiar text. The Arie Antiche are the mainstay of a conservatoire singer’s first year. This familiarity of text therefore lends itself to new settings. My brief was that the vocal line must provide an ergonomic workout for the voice, be easy to learn and enjoyable to sing. I have designed the piano accompaniments to be playable by teacher or student for self-accompaniment. The work is dedicated to all the beautiful singers that I have sung with on stage who also teach.
