Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, Benjamin Northey, Johannes Fritzsch


His music – crafted entirely in his head, and only committed to paper once perfected – displays touching lyricism and profound invention.

Even during the war, he never stopped writing music: on troop ships during long ocean crossings, in training camps, in the trenches of Gallipoli, in a military hospital recovering from war wounds, in a bombed-out cellar barely 300 metres from enemy lines in France. This album presents his complete catalogue of orchestral works, many recorded here for the first time.
