Sensual Classics Music CD : The Masterpieces Collection

ABC Classics with the Art Gallery of NSW | ISBN 0602557618754

Part of the The Masterpieces Collection series.



From the opulence of opera to the intimacy of solo piano: four centuries of luscious, languorous music that will seduce and delight.

Music by Delibes, Cilea, Rachmaninoff, Puccini, Bizet, Monteverdi, Rodrigo and more. Art by Lord Frederic Leighton, Charles Landelle and Rupert Bunny.

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.
