Women of Note Volume 5 (CD)

This annual ABC Classic project recognises and celebrates the creativity and talent of Australia's female composers. In the 2023 edition, Women of Note Volume 5, we hear from five rising stars in the Australian art music scene – Ella Macens, Elizabeth Younan, Christine Pan, Marlene Cummins and Heather Percy – plus two of the most respected women composing today: Anne Boyd and Deborah Cheetham Fraillon.

The collection also reflects a broad range of cultures, including composers of Chinese, Lebanese, Latvian and Indigenous heritage.
