Stephen McNeff on writing Vivienne

clare mccaldin podcastIn my line of work I bump into all kinds of interesting people with great stories to tell. However, because they work behind the scenes you won’t always get to hear them. I asked them if they’d like to talk to me (and my iPhone!) about what they do, so that I could share it with you here.

In this episode I visit the studio of composer Stephen McNeff. As well as discussing his writing for voice in general, we also talk about Vivienne, a song-cycle he wrote for me and Libby Burgess in 2013 and which is out soon on CD from Champs Hill Records.
