Product details

Michael Kieran Harvey plays Australian masterworks for piano of the last fifty years. The composers represented on this great recording include Raymond Hanson, Gordon Kerry, Brendan Colbert, Helen Gifford and Neil Kelly.

This CD juxtaposes numerous currents and shockwaves emanating from Europe that have played out in Australian composition over the last sixty years or so. The search for a grand unifying structure seems to link all of these works, which are nevertheless diverse in compositional approach. All the works refer to a specific device or code that is reinterpreted and developed from an Australian perspective.

Duration: 66 min.

Liner notes include program notes and biographical notes on the composers and performer.
