Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"The opening movement's rhythmic ostinato recalls Revueltas (Sensemaya), while the shorter inner movements feature more delicate textures and some sweetly memorable melodic invention. It's all great fun, a touch outrageous, even cartoonish (Antill has a certain overfondness for the ratchet), and it's dazzlingly performed here by James Judd and the New Zealand Symphony. An Outback Overture might best be described as Copland meets Vaughan Williams--like the former's Outdoor Overture, the piece is bubbly and full of catchy tunes." -Classics Today (10/10)
