Australian Music on ABC Classic FM in October 2010
October broadcasts on ABC Classic FM include a sprinkling of premieres from the likes of Paul Stanhope, James Ledger, Alan Holley and Shoeb Ahmad. Plus three very distinctive broadcast events with very contrasting swags of Australian music - the Hush Project #10 with the brothers Grigoryan, The MSO's Sporting Scores program, and Sydney Children's Choir's 20th birthday celebration concert.
Meanwhile online, the AMU podcast series continues with new works from emerging composers Adam Starr, Ross Carey, Melody Eötvös, Mark Holdsworth and Thomas Green, recorded at the Australian String Quartet's 2010 Composers Forum in August. And classic/amp ramps up in preparation for November's special Australian Music Month coverage.
