2 editions published in 2015 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the latest release in the Australian Composer Series, the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra celebrates the lyrical and beguiling music of Graeme Koehne. The disc opens with the joyous fanfare Forty Reasons to Be Cheerful, commissioned for the 40th anniversary of the Adelaide Festival Centre and inspired by the open-hearted optimism of Beethoven's 'Ode to Joy'. The short elegy The Persistence of Memory is a haunting and poignant tribute to Guy Henderson, former principal oboist of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, a work inspired by what Koehne describes as a "language of emotions". "Music is part of how we communicate: it's what humans do - not an abstract series of sounds. [This piece] reflects an attempt to return to the fundamental elements of musical 'language'." Divertissement: Trois Pièces Bourgeoises expresses Koehne's desire "to give simple pleasure to my fellow-citizens."Between Two Worlds is a reflective work inspired by David Malouf's novel Fly Away Peter, which traces the journey from innocence to bitter experience of a young man enlisting in the First World War; the six-movement suite is taken from the full-length ballet score commissioned from Koehne by The Australian Ballet. The album closes with Time is a River: "The string quartet is the 'river', pursuing its relentless course, by turns gentle, swirling, turbulent and free-flowing. The clarinet represents some form of persona - a soul, if you like - that is carried along by the flow of the strings, pursuing its own diverse range of characters: melancholic, reflective, playful, ecstatic, capricious, finally reaching a state of acquiescence or acceptance."

Mosaic : Australian guitar concertos by Karin Schaupp( )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Karin Schaupp is one of the most outstanding guitarists on the international scene, acclaimed not only for her breathtaking technical mastery, but also for the passion and intensity of her playing. With this album she celebrates the rich and vibrant Australian guitar repertoire, presenting four concertos that create a uniquely Australian musical landscape. Peter Sculthorpe's Nourlangie was inspired by the ancient beauty of Kakadu in Australia's far north, and the resonances between the music's notes speak of the strength and serenity of the land. Ross Edwards was drawn to the rich flora and fauna of Arnhem Land and the magnificent turquoise of the Arafura Sea beyond. His joyous 'dance/chants', celebrating the mysterious and infinitely changing patterns of birdsong and the insect chorus, frame an exquisitely calm, song-like slow movement. Richard Charlton, himself a guitarist of note, brought his intimate knowledge of the instrument to Mosaic, a collection of memories and impressions of the Northern Territory, from the brilliant colours of earth and sky to the exhilarating power of a tropical storm. Philip Bračanin turns to the Classical heritage of the guitar for his concerto, exploring the lightness and agility of the instrument as well as its expressive qualities
