Product details

Catch 75 was commissioned by Musica Viva Australia for the chamber music ensemble Catch 75, later renamed The Consort of Sydney. The Consort of Sydney toured extensively for Musica Viva in Australia and Europe. The Director was Robert Goode and the artists who performed with Robert included Amanda Thane, Gregory Pikler, David Pereira, Howard Oberg and Margaret Crawford. Catch 75 was one of the key works
featured in the programs of the Consort and one of several composed for the ensemble by Ann.
The work was named after the group, with the word 'catch' meaning 'song'. The composer writes - I wished the work to have an Australian flavour, although it does not refer directly to any particular work by an aboriginal or white Australian. Rather, there is a mix of aboriginal and European instruments using techniques from both traditions and reflecting music of both traditions. I spent many hours listening to the large collection of music made by Dr Alice Moyle on her many visits to northern Australia, in order to make myself better acquainted with aboriginal music.
