Product details

Born in Perth in 1954, Vine is one of Australia's most prolific and versatile composers. Carl Vine’s six symphonies trace concisely the evolution that brought him back to the original symphonic tradition that modernity temporarily curtailed.

Carl Vine's metaphor for his own symphonic practice is drawn from the natural sciences: composition begins with a ‘crystal’, a musical idea whose characteristic angles and planes are explored and transformed in the course of the work’s creation. This process of transformation, of presenting material in varying lights, coupled with the composer’s sense of timing, makes for a series of works whose inherent drama is considerable. Performed by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and featuring the Sydney Philharmonia Motet Choir and Synergy under the direction of Stuart Challender and Edo de Waart.

Duration: 74 min.
