Product details

The passion and vigour of the compositions on this disc, their variety and breadth of reference and their technical brilliance are entirely symptomatic of Michael Whiticker's output as a whole.

The composer's achievements have been recognised by awards, commissions and scholarships both here and overseas, including a Sounds Australian Award and the Fellowship of Australian Composers Award. In 1992/3 he was 'composer-in-residence' with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.

Whiticker's 'Ad Marginem' and 'Via Crucis', 'the Eleventh Station' were selected for the Paris Rostrum in 1991 and 1994 respectively. His music theatre piece 'Love's Blazing Fire' will be premiered by the Sydney Metropolitan Opera in October 1996. Marshall McGuire gave the premier performance of 'After the Fire', a piece for harp, in the last Adelaide Festival.

However the music may affect you, it will never bore you with cliché or empty pleasantry.

Duration: 64 min.

Dedication note: Dedicated to my wife Justine Wilkinson.

Booklet includes introduction by Anthony Gilbert, programme notes and biographical notes on composer and performers.
