War Letters by Diana Blom, Larry Sitsky, Nicole Murphy, Elliott Gyger


New music commemorating WWI
Works by Elliot Gyger, Nicole Murphy, Larry Sitsky and Diana Blom and performed by Halcyon: Alison Morgan soprano, Jenny Duck-Chong mezzo soprano, Clive Birch bass, James Wannan viola, Kaylie Dunstan percussion, Jo Allan piano and Geoffrey Gartner conductor (tracks 1-5).

One doesn't have to dig too deeply to find that many people have a family connection to WWI, with stories of relatives who returned safely ... or did not.  Four Australian composers, representing four generations, were commissioned to set letters from WWI for new music ensemble Halcyon.  The thoughts, reflections and feelings expressed in these personal letters are as fresh today as they were 100 years ago.  War Letters brings into focus the day to day experiences of the men and women taken up by war.  From these personal memories we can reflect on the enormous impact the war, as it continues in our present lives, and truly empathise with those individuals who are speaking to us from both the past and the present.
