“Australia’s greatest composer” Limelight magazinePeter Sculthorpe created an Australian classical music that for the first time spoke directly of the land, the people and the spirit of this country.Released to coincide with what would have been his 90th birthday, The Best of Peter Sculthorpe brings together more than two hours of his best-loved and most iconic works, from solo piano works played by Tamara-Anna Cislowska, to orchestral works and concertos performed by great soloists William Barton, Karin Schaupp and Amy Dickson, and his 18th and final string quartet.Born in Launceston on 29 April 1929, Sculthorpe rose to international recognition by creating a uniquely Australian style of music. From the wet season of the Northern Territory in Kakadu to the brutality of the southern summer in Sun Music IV, from the seaside war memorial that inspired Small Town to the timeless connection between Indigenous people and their land represented in Earth Cry, Sculthorpe captured the extremes of the country’s natural landscape, and stirred the imagination of its people.Sculthorpe was made an officer of the Order of Australia in 1990, and an Australian National Living Treasure in 1998. He died in 2014, at the age of 85. TRACKLISTING PETER SCULTHORPE 1929–2014 CD11. Music for Bali2. Earth Cry William Barton didgeridoo Island Songs – Concerto for Saxophone3. I. Song of Home4. II.

ARIA Award-winning musician Dan Sultan has today announced Nali & Friends, a new album of children’s music and stories to be released April 12. Nali & Friendsis a tale about unconventional, oddball animals from different parts of the world. Co-written with longtime friend and collaborator, filmmaker Rhys Graham, the stories were inspired by the pair’s journey through Uganda and Kenya working with The Thin Green Line Foundation - an international organization that provides welfare and support to Wildlife Rangers. It was during this trip that Dan & Rhys had the opportunity to get up close with baby animals and observe their quirky personalities. The resulting album is bursting with playful, upbeat songs, interwoven with heart-warming stories about growing up, protecting our natural world, and learning to accept difference. Whilst Nali & Friends is Dan’s first full-length kids album, he is no stranger to the genre - having previously collaborated with children’s music icons The Wiggles and Play School.
Amy Dickson saxophonewith William Barton didgeridoo • Daniel de Borah pianoAdelaide Symphony Orchestra, cond. Nicholas Carter Grammy-nominated superstar saxophonist Amy Dickson returns with her most personal album yet, exploring connections between classical composers and the folk music of their homelands.From the red dirt of the Australian desert to the rolling green hills of the Scottish Highlands, In Circles unapologetically celebrates folk music and the tremendous influence it has had on music around the world and throughout history.As Dickson says, “Folk music breathes the very identity of a country, and in troubled times can be a source of solace, over and over again. At the core of folk music lies a beating heart of humanity to which we return again and again. The creation itself of this music requires personal, family and social connections – in a word: kinship.”This sense of community and togetherness is amplified by the collaborations on this album. With celebrated composer and didgeridoo virtuoso William Barton, Dickson explores music by Australian composers Ross Edwards, Peter Sculthorpe and Barton himself. With acclaimed pianist Daniel de Borah she traverses Europe, from Brahms to Falla, Pessard and Vaughan Williams. And Nicholas Carter and the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra explore archetypes of traditional Scottish music in a world premiere recording of Sir James MacMillan’s Saxophone Concerto, written specifically for Dickson.Dickson continues, “In today’s frenetic digital age, folk music offers us a refuge: the enduring simplicity and nostalgia embodied in this music provides timeless sanctuary from the relentless surge of modernity.” We invite you to take a deep, relaxing breath and join us at our table, our fireplace, and with our family. Twice nominated for a Grammy™ award, Amy Dickson made history by becoming the first saxophonist to win a Classic BRIT Award, as Breakthrough Artist of the Year. In January 2016 she was named Young Australian of the Year in the UK; she has since been acknowledged by BBC Music Magazine as one of the world’s six best classical saxophonists, both past and present. Recognised for her remarkable, distinctive tone and exceptional musicality, Amy Dickson has performed throughout the world in such prestigious venues as The Wigmore Hall, Sydney Opera House, Royal Albert Hall, the Konzerthaus in Vienna and theBerliner Philharmonie.

Omega Ensemble • Paul Meyer A magical journey through some of Mozart’s most memorable musical moments.Under the direction of renowned French clarinettist and conductor Paul Meyer, the Omega Ensemble, appearing for the first time in an expanded chamber orchestra configuration, delivers a glowing rendition of three Mozart masterpieces, beginning with his exquisite Clarinet Concerto – the last instrumental piece written by this musical genius before his death in 1791, at the age of just 35. Meyer as soloist blends grace and elegance with quicksilver virtuosity in a sparkling yet sensitive performance.New Zealand bassoonist Ben Hoadley brings Mozart’s youthful Bassoon Concerto to life, beautifully capturing the sonorous tones of this too often neglected instrument. Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 brings the disc to a triumphant close, amply justifying the Omega Ensemble’s reputation as ‘Sydney’s chamber music all-stars’. This live recording, direct from the superb acoustic of Sydney’s City Recital Hall, captures the thrill of a unique performance experience.

Richard Strauss: Violin Concerto | Don QuixoteJames Ehnes violin | Daniel Müller-Schott cello | Christopher Moore violaMelbourne Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sir Andrew Davis The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and their Chief Conductor Sir Andrew Davis continue their acclaimed survey of the orchestral music of Richard Strauss, with this latest volume featuring three world-class soloists – James Ehnes, Daniel Müller-Schott and Christopher Moore – performing two of his finest early works: the Violin Concerto, and the tone poem Don Quixote.Performed here by dual Grammy Award-winning Canadian violinist James Ehnes, Strauss’s Violin Concerto is a beautiful and inventive work, remarkably mature considering Strauss wrote it when he was still a teenager. Strangely seldom performed today, it is full of melody and of virtuoso fireworks, very much of its Romantic time but hinting at the recent Classical masters Beethoven and Mozart.Don Quixoteis inspired by Cervantes’s iconic novel, and Strauss demonstrates every bit of his flair for the dramatic (which would be fully realised in his great operasDer Rosenkavalier, Elektra, Die Frau ohne Schatten andSalome). With Daniel Müller-Schott’s cello representing the famous man of La Mancha, and Christopher Moore’s viola cast as his trusty sidekick Sancho Panza, Strauss takes us on an incredible journey into the mind of this deluded nobleman, and across the rustic landscape of the Don’s native Spain.The MSO’s Strauss series was launched in 2014 with a major European tour including the BBC Proms and the Concertgebouw, and has so far included Four Last Songs with Erin Wall, Ein Heldenleben, Four Symphonic Interludes, Also sprach Zarathustra, Don Juan, Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks and An Alpine Symphony. The recordings have won significant acclaim from the international press, with BBC Music Magazine describing Also sprach Zarathustra as ‘a benchmark recording’.TRACKLISTING RICHARD STRAUSS Violin Concerto in D minor, Op. 8 1 I.

ABC Classic and the West Australian Symphony Orchestra today announce the launch of WASO LIVE!, a new series of digital albums that will showcase the very best of this powerhouse ensemble’s live concerts, vividly recorded by ABC Classic’s team of live music engineers.The series will launch with Anton Bruckner’s monumental Symphony No. 8, conducted by WASO’s Principal Conductor and Artistic Adviser Asher Fisch. A renowned conductor in both the operatic and symphonic worlds, Fisch is especially celebrated for his interpretative command of core German and Italian repertoire of the Romantic and post-Romantic era. Mahler, Richard Strauss, Wagner and Verdi all feature among the plans for future volumes.“Asher is one of the world’s finest conductors – almost unsurpassed in this repertoire – and the sound that he elicits from this orchestra is incredibly powerful,” says Hugh Robertson, Label Manager of ABC Classic. “I’m so excited that these scintillating live performances are now going to be available for everyone in the world to hear at any time.””WASO LIVE! is an exciting new collaboration and we are delighted to partner with ABC Classic to capture WASO’s exceptional performances,” says Mark Coughlan, WASO’s Chief Executive. “I am especially thrilled that the initial release showcases the outstanding artistic relationship that exists between Asher Fisch and his orchestra and the exhilarating music making that results.”The WASO LIVE! series artwork will feature bright, bold and iconic images of the unique natural landscapes of WASO’s home, Western Australia.Having celebrated its 90th year in 2018, WASO is already looking forward to its centenary. ABC Classic and WASO LIVE! will be there to bring you the very best from one of Australia’s great orchestras. The final symphony completed during Bruckner’s lifetime, the 8th is quite simply one of the most thrilling orchestral works ever written.Mahler once famously said, ‘My symphonies represent the contents of my entire life’; Bruckner seems to go one step further, as if fitting the entire sweep of the universe into his epic orchestral works. His Eighth Symphony is the ultimate example of this: the hellish, dissonant nightmare of the first movement, the counterpoint of that sublime, radiant adagio before – finally – we reach a state of cosmic bliss and serenity as motifs from all four movements are brought together in one perfect C major chord.
