The Song Company: Nineteen To The Dozen

A tapestry of nineteen commissions from Australian composers paired with miniatures from each

In a bold attempt to paint the state of the current Australian compositional landscape, a diverse selection of composers from across the country have been asked to fill a segment of time with sounds that draw on the rich heritage of The Song Company’s first 35 years and look forward to a burgeoning future – using the 163 symbols of the International Phonetic Alphabet.

These nineteen commissions are set against fragments of art music from the last thousand years, and together form a dialogue about the nature of vocal music and musical expression. Including music by Alice Chance, Aristea Mellos, Bernie Van Tiel, Chris Williams, Colin Black, Dan Walker, Elizabeth Sheppard, Felicity Wilcox, Gordon Hamilton, Josephine Gibson, Lyle Chan, Matthew Hindson, Naomi Crellin, Owen Elsley, Sally Whitwell, Sonya Holowell, Stephen Adams, and more. Music of the last 12 centuries is represented by Kassiani, Anonymous, Guido d’Arezzo, Hildegard of Bingen, Adam de la Halle, Guillaume de Machaut, John Dunstaple, William Byrd, Henry Purcell, Johann Sebastian Bach, Anton Bruckner, and Igor Stravinsky.
