White Dawn: Songs and Soundscapes by David Lumsdaine
David Lumsdaine's work is mostly rooted in Australia where he was born though he now lives in the UK. This unique and intriguing set includes pieces for a variety of instruments (not all are vocal) a number of which relate to the Australian landscape and the sounds of its unique wildlife - which are also captured in live 'outback' recordings demonstrating the voices of the birds and creatures which inspired some of the works.
The music itself is most approachable and well written. Definitely an important addition to the modern music repertoire.
“this superb anthology reveal what a false dichotomy the whole field recording/"conventional" composition debate can be. Lumsdaine's soundscapes are as concerned with inner dialogues, counterpoint and structure as anything he commits to manuscript paper...These performances...prove deeply sensitive to Lumsdaine's needs, with a special nod going to pianist Peter Lawson for negotiating Cambewarra's secret labyrinths with such clarity” Gramophone Magazine, June 2011

David Lumsdaine: Complete Music for Piano
Tall Poppies Records is proud to release this important recording of the Complete Works for Solo Piano by Australian composer David Lumsdaine. The music, spanning nearly 30 years of Lumsdaine’s compositional life, contains important markers of his compositional concerns and how they have changed through the years. It reveals David Lumsdaine as one of our most important compositional voices, and how important Australia is to him, especially during his residence in the UK. He is clearly fascinated with Australian birdsong, and has a profound relationship with the music of Bach.
In this recording he has the perfect advocate in Australian pianist Mark Knoop. Knoop’s performances are astonishing in their virtuosity and their respect for the music. It is hard to imagine a more perfect rendition of this tough but immensely rewarding music.
This recording has been funded by the Australia Council
