Product details

The third of Halcyon's EP releases, Waves III features two new song cycles by Australian composers Raffaele Marcellino and Nigel Butterley.

Commissioned by Halcyon, both works focus on a figure from Greek mythology and feature texts by contemporary Australian poets. A Strange Kind of Paradise (2010), for four female voices and harp, by Raffaele Marcellino centres on abandoned Ariadne, with poems by Jordie Albiston. Scored for mezzo-soprano, soprano, flute, clarinet, oboe, violin, viola, cello and guitar, Nigel Butterley's Orphei Mysteria (2008), sets poems by Patricia Excell which explore elements of the Orpheus myth.
