Product details

This spectacular sight occurs from March through to November. Roebuck Bay is near Broome.

Ann's works performed by: The Steel City Strings conducted by Shilong Ye with harpist Verna Lee and concertmaster Kyle Little. Other works include outstanding performances by clarinetist Amy Whyte and pianist John Martin.

Duration: 63 min.

Includes programme notes and biographical information on composer and performers.
