Product details

Released to coincide with International Women's Day (8 March), this album begins and ends with works by Indigenous composers that focus on the importance of connection, communication and deep listening: Lou Bennett's Baiyan Woka and Brenda Gifford's Djana, drawing on the composers' respective Yorta Yorta and Yuin heritages.

The tracklist covers a wide array of powerful female composers and performers from a world premiere recording of Margaret Sutherland's 1956 'Quartet for Cor Anglais and String Trio' by Flinders Quartet to Australian music pioneer Miriam Hyde's soloist work in a landmark 1975 recording of her own Second Piano Concerto to the magnificent Fire Dances suite which brings together eight women composers from across all of Australia's states and territories to reflect on the impact of 2020's devastating bushfires.

Duration: 77 min.
