ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jade CDs are widely heard on national and fine music stations throughout Australia, and are recognised as a valuable resource by educational authorities as being uniquely representative of the work of Australian composers. They are manufactured in limited runs of 500 and stocks are therefore may be regarded as collectors' items! All Jade CD covers are distinctive. Most Jade CDs have an anthology format and include works by several composers. It's great to have these CDs on offer for a wider audience at CD Baby.

"AUBURN SPLENDOUR" JADCD 1092

Works by: Carson P. Cooman, Robert Allworth, Eric Gross, Steve Clark, Ann Carr-Boyd, Betty Beath, Ian Shanahan, Derek Strahan. Duration: 66'16"

This is the third Jade CD featuring compositions by American composer and organist Carson P. Cooman along with works by Australian composers. The CD is dedicated to all people of New York and the USA who suffered on September 11 2001. The sound quality on this CD is exceptional. It opens with Allworth's 2001 work "Organ Preludes for Saint and Martyrs", a suite of 6 short pieces each being a portrait in music of a canonised historical figure. These are ably played by Cooman on the organ of the Memorial Church, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts. On the same instrument Cooman plays his attractive meditation titled "Jesus Is The Sunlight" based on the hymn tune "Callahan" by American composer Alfred V Fedak.

Beath's "Mikri Thalassa (Little Sea")" was commissioned in 1993 by Adrian Hooper for the Sydney Mandolins. Its attractive sonorities were inspired by the spectacle of fisherman gathering sponges from the sea near the island of Kalymnos in the Dodecanese. Also composed for Hooper's Mandolin ensemble in 1985 is Eric Gross's very fine "Suite No. 1 for Plectrum Orchestra or Quintet" in four contrasting movements.

Shanahan's capacity for original invention in his own unique avant garde style is illustrated by two works: his contemplation on the Cosmos, "Zodiac: Crystal Orbit Improvisations"(1996), a mandalikon for amplified soprano recorder, MIDI wind instrument, and keyboard synthesizer; and the recent "Harmonia (in PP)" for tenor recorder and piano, written in memory of Professor Peter Platt. Steve Clark's "Phryg Magnet"(2001) for violin and piano is an appealing piece in the Phrygian musical mode.

Strahan himself is heard as singer, guitarist and harmonica player in four of his own "Songs of Peace, Love and Apprehension" chosen from material written and recorded during 1970/74, when he appeared in a weekly TV spot on the Channel 7 Breakfast Show and also at folk-song venues. The CD concludes with Carr-Boyd's short orchestral piece "Images of Australia"(1985) as performed by the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra.

Strahan's four songs and 20 more are also released on his new CD "Take Me To Your Leader", on the Revolve label, Revolve RDS004, available at CD Baby.
