Australian Music on ABC Classic FM in July 2011
This month we bring you three world premieres from West-Australian composers: Iain Grandage's Blackwood, and James Ledger's Johann has left the building and his bassoon concerto Outposts. The Tom Vincent Trio play an all Tom Vincent Sunday Live concert in Hobart, presented by ABC Classic FM. Our special event for the month is New Music Up Late's hosting of the Sydney leg of the 12th Liquid Architecture festival at the Eugene Goossens Hall at the ABC Ultimo Centre in two concerts on Saturday 2 July (4pm and 7.30pm), with an associated broadcast featuring Jon Rose's Team Music, an improv guitar duo including Melbourne's Dave Brown and Pia van Gelder's AV Harp, as part of this year's festival of sound arts.
You can also listen to and read about Australian music in our online archival recording collection classic/amp. Also check out an array of special web features, or subscribe to our weekly AMU podcast for new Australian music recordings and artist interviews direct to your computer.
