Lost Art of Letter Writing Etc
- (DEAN / SYDNEY SYMPHONY / NOTT)
- Format: SACD-Hybrid
- Features: Hybrid SACD
More than most composers currently active, Brett Dean uses music to tackle political and social themes of our times. A common factor in the works on this recording is the sometimes problematic aspects of human communication and the erosion and misuse of language. The recording was made during a public performance of Vexations and Devotions in the framework of the BBC Proms in 2007, with David Robertson conducting the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus and the Australian children's choir Gondwana Voices.
