Three important works from Australian composer Ross Edwards, two of them released for the first time: his concerto for saxophone and percussion 'Frog and Star Cycle', recorded with Amy Dickson and Colin Currie at the world premiere concerts in Sydney in 2016, and his Second Symphony 'Earth Spirit Songs', recorded at the premiere with soprano Yvonne Kenny in 1998 but never before issued on CD. Rounding off the disc is the Melbourne Symphony's 2001 studio recording of Ross's Third Symphony, 'Mater Magna'.
