Elizabeth Green's Biodiversity series
now available for MP3 download
The Australian Music Centre is pleased to
release the popular Biodiversity recordings through our
MP3 download service. The two-volume series, performed and
produced by respected pianist Elizabeth Green, highlights the
diversity of Australian piano music and is set in a landscape of
composers continuing to develop a uniquely Australian identity.
The series represents some of the most popular piano works
written over the last 40 years, and includes a number of works
that feature on the AMEB syllabus and as performance options for
HSC and VCE music units. The first Biodiversity volume
has been out of print for some time.
Purchase MP3 tracks now through the AMC website. Prices start from $1.95.
