About

Both composers represented on this album are well respected members of the new music scene both with 40 years of experience behind them; they are also husband and wife. They also share a passion for nature which is reflected in their music. David Lumsdaine, though now living in England, is Australia’s senior composer. His music is wonderfully dramatic and wide ranging; Nicola LeFanu has been for many years a leading figure in Women in Music; her mother Elizabeth Maconchy was also a very highly respected composer.

The ensemble Gemini has been associated with both composers for decades; introducing new works from both of them to the repertoire. This album is being released to celebrate Nicola’s 70th birthday and (belatedly) David’s 85th. All the works are recorded here for the first time and will demonstrate why their work is still considered fresh, vibrant and relevant.
