David Duvall’s original settings of Shakespeare’s timeless love poetry, in styles ranging from classical to latin to jazz to rock. Perfect for youth concerts or an educational series.
Shakespeare that doesn’t intimidate your students???? It CAN be done!
There Has Never Been Anything Quite Like This Before!
We are excited to announce two new collections designed to build a bridge between singing and acting techniques, and to demystify the language of the greatest theatrical author in the English language.
WHO WILL BELIEVE MY VERSE IN TIME TO COME?
the contemporary art song settings – are beautiful, contemplative solos and duets, for actors/singers of all ages and abilities
TAKE ALL MY LOVES
the jazz/rock/pop settings – are fun, exciting, non-traditional takes on Shakespeare for the more advanced actor/singer. (Many with background vocals and jazz ensemble accompaniments)
David Duvall’s musical adaptations of the sonnets of Shakespeare are a cornucopia of riches. With music that ranges from acapella trio to jazz through bossa nova and New Orleans blues, stopping for dramatic art songs along the way, his inventive settings give a varied and fresh interpretation to some of literature’s finest verses. Aficionados of Shakespeare will be astounded. But most of all, David Duvall has written great music! I can hardly wait to let my students loose on them!
