The Benaud Trio return with The Aussie Album, a beautiful and arresting collection of works that captures modern-day Australia through music.
Using Percy Grainger’s ‘Colonial Song’ as its starting point, The Aussie Album touches on questions about what it means to be here and now: our ‘it’s complicated’ relationship with Europe, finding community in our modern lives, the development of a uniquely Australian artistic sensibility and, of course, cricket.
Featuring works by Percy Grainger, Paul Stanhope, Nicole Murphy, Carl Vine, Iain Grandage and Matthew Hindson – including six world premiere recordings and four works commissioned by the Benaud Trio – The Aussie Album explores the fundamental question: “What does it mean to be Australian?”
They are joined in this stunning recording by star soprano Greta Bradman, whose recent stage performances and recordings have cemented her status as a singer of immense warmth and artistry.
