    Holy Fools

    Available April 1 2020. ORDER YOUR CD NOW

    Holy Fools celebrates those amongst us who don’t conform to social norms but compensate with divine wisdom. The four pieces by Luke Altmann share an honest conviction and simplicity, providing comfort, refuge and hope in a troubled and confusing world. Luke is an APRA and AACTA nominated composer for concert and film and his music melds the spacious calm of Arvo Pärt with the melodic wandering of Schubert. View the album trailer.

    The limited-edition compact disc version of the album comes in a gorgeous six panel case with 16 page booklet, designed by Sam Songailo.

  • The Aussie Album

    The Aussie Album

    The Benaud Trio return with The Aussie Album, a beautiful and arresting collection of works that captures modern-day Australia through music.

    Using Percy Grainger’s ‘Colonial Song’ as its starting point, The Aussie Album touches on questions about what it means to be here and now: our ‘it’s complicated’ relationship with Europe, finding community in our modern lives, the development of a uniquely Australian artistic sensibility and, of course, cricket.

    Featuring works by Percy Grainger, Paul Stanhope, Nicole Murphy, Carl Vine, Iain Grandage and Matthew Hindson – including six world premiere recordings and four works commissioned by the Benaud Trio – The Aussie Album explores the fundamental question: “What does it mean to be Australian?”

    They are joined in this stunning recording by star soprano Greta Bradman, whose recent stage performances and recordings have cemented her status as a singer of immense warmth and artistry

  • Bohemian Rhapsody

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    'performances to bask in' - Music & Vision Daily (UK)
    The Benaud trio perform cherished masterpieces by great Bohemians, Smetana and Dvorak, capped off with a spirited homepage to Freddie Mercury’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” in an arrangement by Nicholas Buc.

    Bohemian Rhapsody stands in marked contrast with their debut recordings of contemporary Australian piano trios and demonstrates the breadth of their taste in repertoire. In Bohemina Rhapsody the Benauds show their long abiding love for the trios of Smentana and Dvorak.
