Nance Grant AM MBE

Monday, 10 June 2013 - 10:00pm

Our warmest congratulations to renowned soprano Nance Grant AM MBE for her Queen’s Birthday Honour for significant service to the performing arts, particularly opera. Possessed of a voice with beauty and power, an ease of technique, a perfection of phrasing and taste that cemented her place in the hearts of Australian music lovers, Nance Grant was one of Australia’s foremost dramatic sopranos during the 1960s 70s and 80s; a great voice never heard beyond local shores.

You can now hear her glorious voice in The Art of Nance Grant which delighted reviewers around the world. From Germany’s esteemed Opernglas “Nance Grant was the owner of one of the more important voices of the 20th century”. From Web La Opera (Spain) “This is an excellent tribute to a great singer. Little known outside her own country, now we can all know and appreciate Nance”. Forum Opéra (France) described her “…opulent timbre...a luminous top in a perfect blend of registers...More please!”.

This 2-CD set The Art of Nance Grant is the long overdue presentation of Nance Grant.

CD 1: Nance Grant and Geoffrey Parsons perform Grieg, Hageman and R. Strauss
CD 2: Nance Grant sings opera, oratorio and Lieder
