Notes and Editorial Reviews

“...outstanding, innovative and inspiring...Disc of the year.”

Southern Cross Soloists is a leading Australian chamber group... They perform magnificently, in various combinations, on this outstanding, innovative and inspiring recording... Wagan Watson's Smoke encrypted whispers are 23 brief poems that won best book and poetry prizes in 2005... All the poems are beautifully recited on this disc by Ron Haddick, to show haunting humanity, dark colours and compelling nuances... 23 different Australian composers, each with Brisbane connections, were commissioned to write 100-second pieces, five of them with vocal parts - each being given a specific poem. The results are original, but touched with echoes of
Read more Prokofiev, Stravinsky and other modern greats... Disc of the year.

-- Geoff Adams, Otago Daily Times (New Zealand) [May 25, 2013] Read less
