Music of Don Kay, Various Artists

This may come as a shock to classical music lovers, but Don Kay is still alive and composing in Hobart, Tasmania. This new release features a number of his recently written chamber works, highly suited to his sparse compositional style. With his Piano Sonatas 2-4 *as the centre point of the recording, they are interspersed with Hastings Triptych for Flute and Piano* and a Sonata for Cello and Piano. Originally recorded in 2007, this is a real boon for lovers of modern, simple, easy listening music.

Kate Rockstrom is from Readings Carlton.
