Product details

A retrospective collection of chamber works by leading Melbourne contemporary composer, Thomas Reiner. Features soloists from Monash University and ensemble re-sound.

"As the title suggests, the music on this CD is not for easy listening ... if there were such a thing as a perfect listening strategy for my compositions, then it would have to be one that avoids traditional expectations of what constitutes music and instead encourages the sort of mindful and unconditioned listening that allows for the enjoyment of sounds and sound structures in their own right."
(Thomas Reiner on Hard Chamber)

Highett Pointillism (track 1 on this CD) was chosen to be part of the Australian sections' submission to the 2005 ISCM World Music Days.

Duration: 57 min.

Liner notes include programme notes and a biographical note on the composer.
