Conductor Ensembles Composers

Notes & Reviews:

THE AUSTRALIAN VOICES "This ensemble is captivating: breathtaking homogeny, perfect intonation, spectacular virtuosity... " Martin Steidler, Professor of Choral Conducting, Munich University "Luscious harmonies, visceral thrills, satisfying sense of form" Edinburgh Festival Journal "This is wonderful singing, most impressive ... amazing!" Simon Carrington, founding member of The King's Singers "The most sublime performance tonight I have heard ever anywhere in the world!" Jonathon Welch AM, Choir of Hard Knocks and Opera Australia It is with a distinctive, fresh sound and high artistic energy that The Australian Voices commission, perform and record the music of Australian composers. Since 1993 the ensemble has championed an astonishing flourishing of new Australian vocal music, having commissioned hundreds of new works. The ensemble tours internationally each year and has been recognised by many international awards, including multiple gold medals at the World Choir Games (2006) and first prizes at the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod (2001). In 2012 the ensemble gave twenty performances at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and a live in-studio broadcast on BBC3 in London. Recently they have created new works specifically intended for "performance" on YouTube. Gordon Hamilton's composition Toy Story 3 = Awesome! has been viewed over 100,000 times. Other clips, such as Tra$h Ma$h and We Apologise, have created controversy, forging new directions in choral music. Hamilton has been Artistic Director since 2009 and is considered one of Australia's most exciting young conductors and composers.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
This seems to be a small vocal ensemble of around 12 singers. They start off with two ethnically- charged selections that really get the adrenaline going. The first is a native Australian song full of thumping rhythms and exotic sonorities. The second fuses jazz and the sounds of South India, and it takes off nicely as well.
