Elena Kats-Chernin wrote her famous Eliza aria initially as part of the ballet Wild Swans, choreographed by Meryl Tankard for the Australian Ballet. Originally, the music was scored for soprano and orchestra and had its premiere in 2003.
The composer writes: 'The piece introduces princess Eliza and expresses her pure soul, innocence and faith in the good of the world. The piece is light in texture and uses very simple harmonies (it starts with just 3 chords A minor-C major-F major). Since then I transcribed it for piano solo, as well as for string quartet, clarinet quartet, violin and piano, clarinet and piano, flute and piano, etc... Due to the use of the original version in a TV advertisement in UK, it became well known there and has since been remixed by Mark Brown as well as other DJs, as well as made into a pop song (called "The Journey Continues" sung by Sarah Cracknell).'
This publication, now available through the AMC Shop, includes score and set of parts for the string quartet arrangement of the work.

Christine McCombe is a Melbourne-based composer, teacher and writer, this CD contains four of her chamber works, all in world premiere recordings.
'…The process of revising, rehearsing and recording a new CD of my chamber music (three kinds of silence on Tall Poppies) gave me the opportunity to delve back into my compositional past and find the connecting strands between works that, on the surface, might seem quite unrelated…', wrote Christine McCombe on the AMC's Resonate magazine in July 2018.
Featuring an all-Australian program of works for clarinet/bass clarinet, with or without piano/percussion, this CD is a must-have for clarinet players and HSC students. The compilation includes music by Matthew Hindson, Felicity Wilcox, Gerard Brophy, Corrina Bonshek and many other Australian composers.
In this evocative and moving book, now back in stock, composer and broadcaster Andrew Ford shares the vivid musical experiences - good, bad and occasionally hilarious - that have shaped his life.
Harriet Cunningham wrote in her review: 'Ford investigates his memories, his music, how it makes him feel, how it makes others feel, like a questing bloodhound, piecing together exquisite details and fragile links with all the skill of an artist. Or a composer... Music is, of course, his constant companion and, on the way, he tries to answer questions about how it works. What is music? What does it mean? Can it be political? Why do I compose?'
