Musica Viva 60th Anniversary CD
Musica Viva 60th Anniversary CD (Tall Poppies TP176)
SKU: 03254
AU $23.00

Label: Tall Poppies Cat. No.: TP176 Medium: CD No. Discs: 1

This new CD (2005) celebrates the achievements of Musica Viva Australia in fostering new Australian chamber music over the last 60 years. Since 1945, Musica Viva has been involved in the creation of nearly 100 new works from a wide range of Australian composers in a programme that continues to develop an original body of Australian chamber music. The complete list of these works is included with the CD.

The music presented here spans a period of nearly 30 years, including the most recent - Carl Vine's String Quartet no 4. The world premiere of this exciting new work was given by the renowned Takacs Quartet during their 2004 Musica Viva concert tour of Australia, with the performance on this disc being recorded by ABC Classic-FM Radio during their Hobart performance.

The other four works are performed by the Australia Ensemble and the Goldner String Quartet, and written by Australian composers Peter Sculthorpe, Ross Edwards, Gordon Kerry, and jazz pianist and composer Mark Isaacs. The music is wonderful and the performances are superlative. More details
