REAR VISION : live concert recordings 1998 – 2008

Rear Vision is a collection of exciting, unusual, expressive, challenging or whimsical works by 27 Australian composers. This Melbourne Composers’ League double compact disc celebrates ten years of concerts, workshops, an international festival, dinners and barbeques, and represents the output of composers working together. The works presented on this compact disc have been recorded at either an Elbow Room café concert, a Mosaics concert, our Asian-Pacific festival Federation Music Week, or at one of our cross-cultural concerts with Japan, Korea, Turkey, Romania, Thailand, the Philippines, Hong Kong, and New Zealand.
