Product details

This is the first disc of its kind to be released in Australia - an overview of important works written for cello and piano, spanning a period of 108 years. The earliest work is the Grainger Scandinavian Suite, a tour de force for both performers and a work that deserves a place in the concert hall. Other heritage masterpieces include Ian Farr's Sonata, a work which repays the time spent to becoming acquainted with it, and neglected since its initial performances, and Don Banks' seminal Three Studies.

The latest work on the CD is one of several of Martin Wesley-Smith's Papuan works: Morning Star Lament, which requires the cellist to sing. Elena Kats-Chernin's Blue Silence, Alicia Grant's Night Spell and Ian Munro's Lucy Sleeps all cast a gentle spell, which is totally dispelled by Hindson's racy Jungle Fever.

David Pereira teams up with Timothy Young (pianist at the Australian National Academy of Music) to present these works.

This CD release is part of Tall Poppies' 21st birthday celebrations.

Duration: 71 min.

Liner notes include program notes and biographical notes on the composers and performers.
