Description:
Australia's Best-Loved Contemporary Composer! Deluxe Box-Set, Featuring Acclaimed Albums And Completely New Recordings!

Elena Kats-Chernin Collection, The (Box Set)ABC Classics celebrates the 60th birthday of pre-eminent Australian composer Elena Kats-Chernin with a 10CD boxset, bringing together iconic works with pieces recorded especially for this collection.

Kats-Chernin is one of the most cosmopolitan composers working today, with a prolific catalogue of works for theatre, ballet, orchestra, chamber ensemble and piano. Her dramatically vivid, brilliantly scored and often propulsive music communicates a mixture of lightheartedness and lingering melancholy, combining strong rhythmic figures with elements of cabaret, tango, ragtime and klezmer.

This 10CD collection celebrates more than two decades of iconic recordings, starting with Elena Kats-Chernin's first album of the ABC Classics label, released in 1996.

Tracks include:
Wild Swans · Prelude and Cube · Butterflying · Unsent Love Letters · Blue Silence · Variation in a Serious Black Dress · Piano Concerto No. 2 · Mythic · Torque · Re-inventions · Clocks · Cadences, Deviations & Scarlatti · Russian Rag

Previously unreleased and newly recorded works include:
Displaced Dances · Zoom and Zip · Big Rhap · The Witching Hour · Heaven is Closed · Golden Kitsch · The Three Dancers · The Sunshine Journal · Fleeting Moments · Diva

Featuring the Australian Chamber Orchestra, the Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne and Tasmanian Symphony Orchestras, Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, Australian World Orchestra, The Idea of North, Gondwana Voices, Tamara-Anna Cislowska, Donna Coleman, Amelia Farrugia and many more.
