ART Song Perth’s final recital for the year will see audience members embark on an enticing evening voyage through the world of song, visiting Germany, Venice, France and The Orient – with light hearted cabaret as their final destination. The Lieder in the concert title refers to the 12 exquisite songs of Schumann's Liederkreis Opus 39 that baritone Robert Hofmann will sing.

The L'Orient alludes to themes of exotic lands to the east in 19th century French song to be sung by soprano Lucy Mervik and the beautiful melodies in Six Songs in Venetian Dialect by Reynaldo Hahn to be sung by mezzo-soprano Caitlin Cassidy.

The Laughter refers to the happy ending provided by Robert Hofmann's Edinburgh, Melbourne and Perth Fringe award-winning Lederhosen-wearing alter-ego Helmut Wunderlicher who will present his mini-workshop called "Follow ze Lieder".

Art Song Perth artistic director Marilyn Phillips will accompany the singers on the grand piano in the sonorous acoustic of the beautifully renovated Church of The Resurrection in Swanbourne.

The audience is in for a real treat as baritone Robert Hofmann also performs as his Edinburgh, Melbourne and Perth Fringe award-winning alter-ego Helmut Wunderlicher – costume and all.

“In this recital, I will be singing the exquisite 12 songs of Schumann’s Song Cycle Opus 39 as myself with Marilyn Phillips playing the piano,” he said.

“Then for the final part of the concert I will don my Lederhosen (or Liederhosen…an in-joke as Lieder is the German word for songs) and fluorescent yellow wig to become Helmut Wunderlicher, who will present a brief work shop called “Follow ze Lieder”. The “Laughter” in the concert title alludes to Helmut Wunderlicher’s appearance”.

Hofmann said that German singer Helmut Wunderlicher became a relationship counsellor as he enjoyed giving advice to his fellow singers who seemed to have a plethora of personal problems.

In his workshop “Follow ze Lieder" Herr Wunderlicher enthusiastically applies his skills by singing beautiful German Lieder in English, often in translations that have nothing to do with the original German, to “Lied” the audience to contemplate issues in their love lives and inner-most thoughts. To quote Herr Wunderlicher: “Audiences alvays leave my vorkshops feeling zemselves in a new vay”.
