1. a musical exposition
2. an exhibition
3. an exposing of the artists' personality through his/her work.

The works featured on this CD span nearly a quarter of a century of composition in the field of chamber music by Peter Tahourdin. They reflect Peter's changing approach to composition, and encompass a myriad of influences and themes, from Indian ragas to the Carmina Burana; with its juxtaposition of the sacred and the profane.

Featuring many of Australia's finest musicians including Michael Kieran Harvey, Kirsten Williams, Jeannie Marsh, Frederik Shade, Rudolf Osadnik, Arturs Ezergailis, Peter Neville, Bradley Daley, Carl Rosman and Phillipa Safey.

Dialogues No. 1 & No. 4 from the Dialogue series are concerned with the notion of direct yet varied interplay between performers and are inspired by conversations between two people, in which a topic is broached, discussed and extended before a new different topic is introduced.

Raga Music No. 1 & 4 - take their structure from the procedures that underlie the unfolding of the raga in north Indian classical music. Raga Music 1 employs the poem The Starlight Night by late nineteenth century priest, poet and mystic, Gerard Manley Hopkins.

Songs of Love and Fortune is a song cycle based on texts from the Carmina Burana, a collection of poems from the twelfth and thirteenth century that cover a wide range of topics from the sacred and profound to the comic and bawdy.

And finally the title track Expose performed by the leading Australian pianist, Michael Kieran-Harvey.

This recording was supported by the Victorian Government through Arts Victoria - Department of Premier and Cabinet.

Duration: 70 min.
