Product details

Winner of the 1998 ABC Listener's Choice Award!

This double CD set brings together chamber music by Brenton Broadstock, one of Australia's most well- established and respected composers.

From the earlier works 'Beast from Air', 'Aureole 3', 'String Quartet' and 'Aureole 4' to the more recent 'Dying of the Light',' 'I touched your glistening tears...', 'The Clear Flame Within' and 'Bright Tracks', Broadstock maintains a direct, uncluttered and lyrical style, in which his social conscience remains a vital element.

Includes award winning pieces:

'Bright Tracks', featuring soprano Merlyn Quaife was awarded the illustrious Paul Lowin Song Cycle Prize in 1994.

'Beast From Air' was performed at the ISCM World Music Days in Hong Kong in 1988.

'The Dying of the Light' was awarded the 1997 Jean Bogan Prize for solo piano.
