ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Chamber music, where just a few instruments come together, is the best kept secret of the music world. The listener can delight in hearing with immense clarity all the colours of a rich sonic landscape; add some exotic and obscure instruments and you have a veritable feast of sound. Every year, Halcyon puts together one such project with no limits, where an ambitious gathering of instruments results in an aural and visual spectacle for the listener and a rewarding experience for all on stage. In this final performance for 2004, Halcyon presented a luxurious program of Spanish, American and Australian chamber music, featuring the poetry of Spanish Federico Garcia Lorca, Basque Bernardo Atxaga and the Indian 16th century poetess Mirabai.

Based in Sydney, the Australian ensemble HALCYON has emerged as a dynamic force for the promotion of new and recent chamber music for voice.
HALCYON directors Alison Morgan and Jenny Duck-Chong are both successful Australian solo artists, with a shared commitment to contemporary classical music. They are joined in HALCYON performances by some of Australia’s most esteemed chamber soloists, conductors and singers.
There is a vast amount of new repertoire composed for voice and chamber ensemble world wide, most of it receiving limited performance opportunities in Australia. HALCYON is committed to unearthing these neglected musical gems of the twentieth century and beyond with sophisticated performances of contemporary music including international and Australian premieres. Through the commissioning of new works, HALCYON also provides Australian composers with exciting opportunities for promotion and performance of their important contribution to the repertoire.
Every year HALCYON presents a range of new music, from works for one or two instruments to large-scale compositions. In 2003, the ensemble performed two major international compositions by Harrison Birtwistle and James Macmillan, alongside a new commission for two voices and small ensemble by young Australian composer Jane Stanley. The 2004 Concert Series featured newly commissioned works by Australian composers Graham Hair, John Peterson, Rosalind Page and Dan Walker alongside international compositions by such composers as George Crumb, Kaija Saariaho, Earl Kim and Gabriel Erkoreka.
