Tall Poppies

A manifest of struggle and hope

Welcome to the world's first "classical" protest CD. The music is wide-ranging, from Germany, France, England, Austria, Poland, Chile, USA, and Australia, covering issues as diverse as world wars, the Holocaust, dictatorships and the stolen generation. It is a no-holds-barred plea for humanity to get a grip on humanitarian values, before it is too late.
