Gerald Brophy: “Exu” Violin Concerto (1982)
For amplified violin and orchestra



Commissioned by the Australian Broadcasting Commission
Premiered December 1983
Andre Hedges, Violin
Melbourne Symphony Orchestra
Patrick Thomas, Conductor
Radio Broadcast

From the collection of Karl Miller


http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?f9uc182w3uj898u


DISSONANCE ALERT:

I have a special sentimental attachment to this work, since it drew me a reprimand at UC. Not only was it dissonant, but used electronic amplification.  Truly the Devil's music.  All kidding aside, I think this work is pretty good, if you can handle some edginess.

He is still active, and does a lot of work integrating electronics and third world elements with orchestral compositions.

 

A bio from his own website:

http://gerardbrophy.com.au/

Bio from his site:

After an increasingly musical adolescence, Gerard Brophy began his studies in the classical guitar at the age of twenty-two. In the late seventies he worked closely with Brazilian guitarist Turibio Santos and the Argentine composer Mauricio Kagel before studying composition at the NSW State Conservatorium of Music.

He has been commissioned and performed by some of the world’s leading ensembles, including the Melbourne, Queensland, Tasmanian, West Australian, Sydney and New Zealand Symphony Orchestras: the Malaysian Philharmonic; and the BBC Philharmonic and Symphony Orchestras, to name a few. Over recent years he has developed a keen interest in collaborating with artists from other disciplines and he is particularly active in the areas of ballet, dance and electronica. He has also been involved in exciting collaborations with musicians from other cultures among them the great Senegalese master drummers, the N’Diaye Rose family, and the timbila virtuoso Venancio Mbande from Mozambique.

Recent performances include the sell-out season of his ballet Yo Yai Pakebi, Man Mai Yapobi choreographed by Regina van Berkel and performed by the Residentie Orkest and the Nederlands Dans Theater; the premiere seasons of Semele and Halcyon as part of the Australian Ballet’s highly successful INTERPLAY and EDGE OF NIGHT programmes, and the Song Company's tour of Gethsemane, his contemporary passion play.

Currently he divides his time between Brisbane and Calcutta.

Another blurb I've dug up:

Gerard Brophy is a contemporary Australian composer. His music has been performed at all the major festivals including the Gaudeamus Music Week, Warsaw Autumn, Nuove Consonanza, Nuovi Spazi Musicali and the Zagreeb Biennale.

Gerard Brophy began his music studies in classical guitar. He studied composition with Don Banks, Anthony Gilbert and Richard Toop at the NSW Conservatorium of Music and graduated as Student of the Year in 1982. Brophy has been awarded numerous composition prizes here and overseas and his works have been selected for performance at the 1981, 1984, 1986 and 1991 ISCM World Music Days.

Brophy has received Australia Council Composer Fellowship, an Italian government scholarship and scholarships from the Accademia Musicale Chigiana di Siena and the Paris Conservatoire. His music has been commissioned and performed by some of the world's leading ensembles - the St Louis, Melbourne and Sydney Symphony Orchestras, Kitchener Waterloo Symphony, Nash Ensemble, Het Nieuw Ensemble, Gruppo Musica d'Oggi, Het Trio, Chicago Pro Musica, Ensemble Octandre and Ensemble l'Itineraire, and it has been regularly broadcast in Europe, Japan, United States and Australia. In late 1983, Brophy was appointed the inaugural Composer-in-Residence at Musica Viva Australia. This was followed by other residencies with the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Queensland Conservatorium and the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble.

Repost as requested, and threw in the Sinfonietta, Melbourne S O, John Hopkins (from LP World Record Club Stereo Foundation for the Recording of Australian Music SFRAM-1, 2YS706)


Dorian Le Gallienne (1915-1963)
Ballet "Voyageur"
The Ballet Guild Orchestra, Harold Badger, Conductor (from W&G 10" LP, WG.CL.554)

"The opening section depicts a flight of wild geese migrating north. The rhythm of the music underlines the relentless wing beats of the birds. A shot interrupts this flight and Voyageur, the leader, is wounded in the wing and falls to earth. Discovered amongst the reeds he struggles to fly and is watched intently by Priscilla, a grey and white bird.
Waterfowl invade the scene with their various calls clearly heard in the music.
Priscilla now approaches the wounded Voyageur and comforts him. He finds consolation for his loss of flight in the beautiful harmony of the love duet.
Interlude music denotes the passing of time. Priscilla is now seen schooling her two chicks who enjoy squabbling more than their mother's discipline.
In the fugue Voyageur joins his family in play and while trying to teach his young to fly finds that his wounded wing has healed. In his great joy he unthinkingly flies away leaving Priscilla along and unable to follow him.
Voyageur remembers his mate and returns to her. The little family joins in the daily life on the lake and once more the calls of the water fowl are heard in the music. A shot breaks this happy busy scene. Suddenly there are no birds to be seen, only the dead body of Priscilla remains. Into the tragic stillness Voyageur returns to find and protect his mate. He hears the music of the birds on their return journey and, realising that his love is dead soars up to take his place in the great southward migration of the wild geese."

Thanks to Member ttle for spotting this broadcast, which took place yesterday the eleventh of March:

Andrew Schultz (born 1960) - Third Symphony, opus 91 - first performance:

Here is the music itself:

    http://www.mediafire.com/?o243z55c8eef3sz

And the announcer's introduction:

    http://www.mediafire.com/?la7g4nt83xmvexv

And the announcer's final discourse:

    http://www.mediafire.com/?1ll4014mthdw984

The performers are the Canberra Symphony Orchestra and the Centenary Choir, conducted by Nicholas Milton. This recording was made at the Conservatoire on the ninth, two days before the public première on the eleventh, but it was, curiously, transmitted at precisely the same time as that public première was taking place.
