New music in an ancient land: Australian composers paint in sound their visions of the past, present and future of their country.

Music by Percy Grainger, Peggy Glanville-Hicks, Peter Sculthorpe, Nigel Westlake, Elena Kats-Chernin and more.
Art by Tom Roberts and Brett Whiteley.

Timeless art and great music: ABC Classics and the Art Gallery of New South Wales present a new collection of albums bringing together culture from through the ages. From nineteenth-century visions of grandeur in Epic Classics to the sacred tradition in Divine Classics, and from Australia`s own artistic heritage to the world of the Modernists, these albums provide rich insights by bringing art and music together.

Previous collaborations between ABC and AGNSW include music audio-guides for the blockbuster exhibitions The Greats, Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, and Nude: art from the Tate collection with the acclaimed Nude Live performances in collaboration with the Sydney Dance Company and the Sydney Festival.
