Essentially Australian / Music for the Carillon with an Australian Connection
A carillon is a set of twenty-three or more stationary bells arranged chromatically and played mechanically, with no electrical or other assistance.
'Essentially Australian' features the stunning sound of Australia's National Carillon, one of the world's largest and most beautiful. Situated amongst the beauty and tranquility of Aspen Island in the picturesque Lake Burley Griffin, its award-winning design and height of fifty metres allow music to drift over a 300 metre radius.
Contains original compositions, arrangements of traditional and popular songs and transcriptions from the piano repertoire, all with an Australian connection.
