John Jenkins “22 Contemporary Australian Composers” (paperback book)


Out of stock


A rare, probably one-off, opportunity to purchase your own copy of this seminal book on the new wave of Australian contemporary composers, published by NMA in 1988.

While the text is available online, the book itself contains a host of illustrations including scores, performance imagery, photo portraits by Peter Lyssiotis and other documentation that is not included in the online version.

Jenkins’ presents chapters on the following composers: Ernie Althoff, Ros Bandt, Ross Bolleter, Philip Brophy, Warren Burt, David Chesworth, Syd Clayton, Jim Denley, Elwyn Dennis, Sarah Hopkins, Herbert Jercher, Chris Knowles, Vineta Lagzdina, Alan Lamb, Rainer Linz, Chris Mann, Ron Nagorcka, Colin Offord, Alistair Riddell, Rik Rue, Greg Schiemer, and Caroline Wilkins.

Sourced from the publisher’s archive, in as-new condition (some minor fraying of covers, but spines are uncracked), originally printed in an edition of 1000 (190 pages). ONE COPY LEFT!
