A CD of chamber music by one of Australia’s favourite composers: Elena Kats-Chernin.
A distinguished cast of Australian musicians plays works written for them, on commission. All the music is strong, always optimistic, never dull! Elena Kats-Chernin is fresh from her success on stage with the score for the ballet Wild Swans for Meryl Tankard and the recent ballet Amalgamate for the Bangarra Dance Theatre with the Australian Ballet.
