New & noteworthy
Move Records was established on 24 December 1968. We are now celebrating our golden anniversary of 50 years. Over the past year we have been recording tracks for a special CD to mark the 50 years. We invited Australian composers to write a short piece for the CD, and now have a disc with new works by 24 Australian composers. Here's a year by year history:
Pianist Lachlan Redd performed one of the tracks from the CD "Pieces after childhood" at the premiere of the documentary on the life of Australia's legendary pianist Geoffrey Tozer. The film, which gets its commercial release in May 2019, is entitled "The Eulogy" after Paul Keating's eulogy at Geoffrey Tozer's funeral in 2009.
Step back in time to an era of unprecedented human innovation with the award-winning Syzygy Ensemble, and percussionist Dan Richardson. Sally Greenaway's The 7 Great Inventions of the Modern Industrial Age explores the astounding surge in human invention during the 20th century. And its consequences . . .
Life Cycle traces the emotional journey of impending motherhood through the music of highly regarded composer Emily Hall and the words of acclaimed poet Toby Litt. It's presented by Gian Slater (vocals), Sonya Lifschitz (piano), Zoe Knighton (cello).
Ronald Farren-Price is the grand old man of the piano in Australia. This book by Ian Burk is about his life, work, career and outlook, based on his own reminiscences.
