The Wiggles

The Emma & Lachy Show

The world’s most popular children's entertainment group The Wiggles are delighted to unveil their brand new musical feature, THE EMMA & LACHY SHOW!
 
In the entertainment world there's been Sonny & Cher, Fred & Ginger, Beyoncè & Jay-Z and now for the first time ever, pre-schoolers have their own dynamic duo - Emma and Lachy! 
 
Following on from the phenomenal popularity of The Wiggles Nursery Rhymes 2 (which reached #3 on the ARIA album chart – the band’s highest chart position to date), THE EMMA & LACHY SHOW is an exciting adventure for the yellow and purple skivvy-wearing Wiggles. 
 
Join Emma and Lachy as they dress up, sing and dance with their friends, and enjoy a variety of fun activities including;  an Irish Jig with Lachy as he meets Phil the Fluter and attends a traditional Irish dancing ball; a dance ballet with Emma and the fairies as they learn some new moves to teach their dollies; a gallop along with Ponso the Pony as he trots around to the beautiful sounds of Lachy’s grand piano, and listen to the sound of Emma’s music box that is filled with exciting trinkets that spark dances from far and wide!

The Huntington Estate Music Festival is one of the brightest stars in Australia’s musical firmament. For three decades, it has been bringing together top-flight musicians from around the country and around the world to present a breathtaking array of chamber music masterpieces, both iconic favourites and delicious new discoveries. Presented by the Huntington Estate Winery in association with Musica Viva Australia, and held in the winery’s Barrel Room, one of the most remarkable and surprising music venues in the world, the Festival is a delight to audiences and musicians alike.After 30 stellar years of exceptional music-making, however, the 2019 Festival will be the last, with Huntington Estate owners Tim and Nicky Stevens reluctantly deciding that their grapes – and their young family – must come first. To mark this significant occasion, ABC Classic is proud to delve into its broadcast archives to present this selection of some of the Festival’s most memorable performances across a typically diverse and intriguing range of repertoire: from Schubert and Dvořák to Bach’s astonishing eldest son Wilhelm Friedemann and Australian composers Ross Edwards and Ian Munro.It was Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra who began the Festival and established it as a serious contender on the world stage – and the hottest concert tickets in the country! This album includes superb three recordings from those early years: music of Mendelssohn, Brahms and Percy Grainger.In 2006, the ACO passed the baton to Musica Viva and Artistic Director Carl Vine, opening up the Festival’s artist roster to an extraordinary range of musicians, both local and international. From among the literally hundreds of thrilling performances, this album features New York-based Australian pianist Andrea Lam, Russian-Armenian clarinettist Narek Arutyunian, the rich bass-baritone of Teddy Tahu Rhodes and Vienna’s acclaimed Eggner Trio, along with regular Festival guests the Goldner String Quartet and the rising stars of the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) Chamber Orchestra.…/2The CD of this compilation is available exclusively at the Festival itself, but for all those who can’t make the trip to Mudgee, ABC Classic is releasing the full album as a digital album, for download and streaming, so that audiences all around the world can share in the celebration. TRACKLISTING  1     MENDELSSOHN Symphony No. 3 ‘Scottish’: II.
