Product details

ABC Classics celebrates the 60th birthday of pre-eminent Australian composer Elena Kats-Chernin with a 10CD boxset, bringing together iconic works with pieces recorded especially for this collection.

Kats-Chernin is one of the most cosmopolitan composers working today, with a prolific catalogue of works for theatre, ballet, orchestra, chamber ensemble and piano. Her dramatically vivid, brilliantly scored and often propulsive music communicates a mixture of lightheartedness and lingering melancholy, combining strong rhythmic figures with elements of cabaret, tango, ragtime and klezmer.

This 10CD collection celebrates more than two decades of iconic recordings, starting with Elena Kats-Chernin's first album of the ABC Classics label, released in 1996.
