Notes and Editorial Reviews

Carl Vine, composer of much-loved concert works and film scores, has produced a Choral Symphony in the grand tradition of Beethoven and Vaughan Williams and as heard on ABC Classic FM. This popular work has been performed by orchestras and choirs all over Australia, and is finally available on CD in a scintillating performance by the Sydney Philharmonia Motet Choir and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. This dark and dramatic Choral Symphony tells the story of Creation using the myths of ancient Babylonia.

In a completely different and lighter style, the Piano Concerto is a virtuosic work written for the gifted Michael Kieran Harvey. The slow movements is one of the most lyrical that Carl Vine has ever composed, evoking
Read more sophisticated and piquant ‘French’ harmonies to beautiful effect.

The disc is rounded off by a brand new revision of Carl Vine’s Symphony No. 4, now called Symphony No. 4.2, which is single movement made of a juxtaposition of many moods, from brooding and shadowy to brilliant and songful.
