About this Recording

ANTILL: Corroboree / Outback Overture

Australian composer John Antill is best remembered for his exuberant, outstandingly successful and ever-popular ballet Corroboree. Drawing on material Antill notated in 1913 at an Aboriginal Corroboree (a type of ritual ceremony) in Botany Bay and on his subsequent research on Aboriginal music, Corroboree is widely recognized as a landmark in Australian music history. Antill’s Outback Overture is a charming concert opener, reminiscent of Stravinsky’s rhythmic energy, British folk melodies, Copland’s harmonic influence and Grainger’s humour.

Antill, John
