With 11 albums already released and 5 more planned for 2008, the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra's Australian Composers Series is truly one of the most significant recording projects ever undertaken within the field of Australian music. With entire albums dedicated to individual composers, the series offers listeners a real insight into the fascinating and highly accessible music being written by Australia's living composers.

This sample of the best of Australian composers is a great introduction to the colourful, vibrant and lyrical world of Australian composition, and demonstrates just why modern Australian music is engaging with audiences as never before.
