This album is a continuation of a series of “Flute Perspective” recordings which sets out to explore and bring to life established Australian flute repertoire from the 1960s through to our current day.

This second volume includes the wonderful world premier of Stuart Greenbaum’s Flute Sonata (2015) which is the seventh in a series of twenty sonatas written by Greenbaum in the new millennium. The work in four movements is a contemplation of the projected discovery in March 2015 of a huge underground ocean on Ganymede – Jupiter’s largest moon and takes the performer and listener on a fascinating journey.

Also featured is the iconic Richard Meale Sonata (1960) a great example of the avant-garde style which the composer was keen to expose to the Australian audiences. Anne Boyd’s Cloudy Mountain (1981) is also included as a continuation from Volume 1 where everyone’s favourite Gold Fish Through Summer Rain was featured. Anne Boyd’s music here represents a pivotal moment in Australia’s development artistically as a member of the Asia Pacific region and demonstrates how artists composers, politicians, chefs and others embraced our neighbourhood cultures and changed the course of Australian life!

There is a short work of Rohan Philips Fragment III (2001-2002) from Seven Fragments after Paul Celan. Derek knew Rohan from decades ago as we both grew up in Bendigo, Victoria. Rohan went on to study composition with Larry Sitsky in Canberra while he studied flute at the VCA with Vernon Hill and Thomas Pinschof. This short work is very well written for the flute with Phillips using the full gamut of colours affects and techniques.

The final work on this album is the Three Minatures of Mark Pollard (Sheridan Close, The Amber Room, and Illoura House). It is a beautiful collection of Minatures played on three different flutes including alto flute and piccolo and which describe three buildings along St Kilda Rd, Melbourne Pollard sketched the pieces based on what he saw, while passing by as a passenger on a tram.
