Featured composers: Luigi Zaninelli (1932-), Aaron Copland (1900-1990), Juliana Hall (1958-), Sylvia Glickman (1932-2006), Ella Jarman-Pinto (1989-)

Featured publishers and institutions/organisations: Stone Records, Phosphor Records, BBC, The JM Coetzee Centre for Creative Practice

Narrative

This recording project provides an opportunity to sample renowned, and rarely-heard, song settings of the poetry and letters of the American poet Emily Dickinson. Designed to specifically track the evolution of thought and concept within Dickinson’s literary output – from every day, mundane, and repetitive activity (recipes, epigrammatic response, prayer) to a broader sweep of Dickinson-related themes (death, love, nature, eternity, and spirituality), these selected compositions provide critical connections between often compartmentalised approaches to her work, and a valuable survey of literary forms, as translated in song.

The project - devised, curated and performed by Dr Nicole Panizza, also features renowned sopranos Nadine Benjamin and Jane Sheldon. As the central research output, it features two internationally-released albums. Nature (2014, Phosphor Records), recorded in Australia, was nominated for a Carlton Classical Music Award in the same year. Emergence (2018, Stone Records), serves as one of the first examples of an album that showcases both existing and emergent song settings of Dickinson’s literary canon. An artistic residency at The JM Coetzee Centre for Creative Practice (University of Adelaide, 2015) evidences further dissemination of the scope, impact, and reach of this material.

Through practice-led enquiry, performance, and recording this project charters a diverse set of American musical responses to Dickinson’s canon, and offers a chronological account of her literary maturation, thereby creating a unique cultural map of American creative partnership. By combining existing works (Copland, 1951) with premiere compositions (Hall, 1985 and 2009; Zaninelli, 2003; Glickman, 1978, and Jarman-Pinto, 2010), the recordings provide a platform where one can experience Dickinson’s output within an aural setting, affording alternative routes of access to a greater understanding of her work. Further, the programming of song cycles rarely heard outside of the USA champions the profile of American art song performance outside of its immediate domain. As such, it seeks to firmly reinforce the critical importance of this research within the existing corpus of Anglo-American musicological, literary and performance-based studies.
