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 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.

Works by: Eric Gross, Michael Smetanin, Robert Allworth, Ann Ghandar, Anne Boyd, Ian Shanahan, Larry Sitsky, Chris Dench, Mary Mageau, Michael Whittaker, Ian Fredericks. Duration: 73.29

This anthology comprises a particularly wide range of music styles and gives a most interesting overview of the work being done over the two decades to 1990 in Australian composition. Featuring works by 11 Australian composers it was produced in 1990 by Jade for the Fellowship of Australian Composers, devised by the President, Ian Shanahan. Instrumentation ranges from Smetanin's "Ladder of Escape" for 7 bass clarinets & 2 contrabass clarinets, through works for solo piano, mandolins, amplified mandolin & percussion, flute & piano, solo alto flute, violin & piano, harpsichord & wind chimes and Ian Frederick's "Sunrise" for tape, produced at the Sydney University Experimental Sound Studio. This CD comes with a 20 page booklet giving full details on each composition.

If you like the sound of this CD, you'll also enjoy the follow-up produced in 1993 - "MUSIC FROM THE FELLOWSHIP OF AUSTRALIAN COMPOSERS" JADCD 1036.
