For 25 years the Sydney Dance Company, under the artistic direction of Graeme Murphy, has dominated the Australian dance scene. Murphy has always had a special mission to commission and promote new Australian dance work, and this CD presents a small selection of some of the most successful scores, released to coincide with a national tour celebrating his work. A huge range of musical styles includes the cheeky tango from Vine's celebrated score to Poppy, the night club styles of Iva Davies, the gentle melodic invention of Graeme Koehne and the powerful orchestral work of Conyngham.
