Milerum's Basket

An exciting new CD showcasing the brilliant music of the Adelaide-based composer, Becky Llewellyn, featuring the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, the Lights Contemporary Ensemble, a multimedia video and much more!

Adelaide-based Becky Llewellyn has been composing for many years and yet has not received the recognition she deserves for her beautiful works. Featuring an innovative classical music video, together with groups such as the Adelaide Symphony and Chamber Orchestras, the Adelaide Chamber Choir and soloists including marimba virtuoso Ryszard Pusz, this CD is an attempt to redress the situation and showcases a broad selection of Lewellyn's works over the past decade. The title, Milerum's Basket, refers to Llewellyn's orchestral tribute to South Australia's Ngarrindjeri people that were once based in the sand dunes of the Coorong region.

For those under pressure and feeling time poor, listening to Llewellyn's fresh acoustic music played by some of Australia's top musicians will stimulate and refresh the spirit.

Press quotes

“Becky Llewellyn ... draws on a holistic response to nature, landscape, sound and the simple materials of musical tonality ... most convincing ... a sincere Australian view of rapture.”

— Peter McCallum, Sydney Morning Herald

“It looks wonderful, but more to the point, the music is ... just TERRIFIC!”

— Charles Southwood, ABC Classic FM

“eminently listenable”

5MBS FM

“The orchestration is complex, delicate and magical ... unreservedly recommended ... of outstanding musical quality.”

— Peter Larsen, 3MBS FM Libretto

“All of the works deserve praise for the high calibre of the music and their performances ... Becky Llewellyn unfortunately is not a name that we immediately think of when naming Australian female composers. This is a shame, as her under representation means Australians are not hearing music from one of the nation's finest composers.”

— Christopher Wainwright, Continuo
