Eight Love Songs for High Baritone Voice, Violin, Violoncello, and Piano, formerly known as Love Songs, contains eight contrasting love songs. Commissioned in 2010 by MusicFestVancouver for renowned Canadian baritone, Tyler Duncan, and Australia's pre-eminent chamber music ensemble Freshwater Trio. The set of eight songs is the result of ongoing collaborations between lyricist, Tara Wohlberg, and composer, Stephen Chatman. The lyrics, full of inner rhymes and wit, explore far ranging aspects of love, such as unexpected encounters, tenderness, Schubert and his song Gretchen am Spinnrade, dreams, dating, some Hanky-panky, and the wrong and right moves of Mr. Smooth. The contrasting musical settings typify Chatman's eclectic panoply of classical and popular musical styles, from Ragtime and Tango to Neo-Romanticism. Total Duration: 19:30 Contents: 1. Excuse Me 2. Something like that 3. Not that kind of song 4. Dream Girl 5. Dating is a sport 6. Hanky-panky 7. My Love 8. Mr. Smooth.
