Article: Melbourne Composers' League, Elbow Room: Mini Festival

An article has been written by Alan Holley about the Melbourne Composers’ League concert held in Montsalvat’s Barn Gallery on Sunday 30th September 2018.

Holley writes:

In the historic Montsalvat in the hills just out of Melbourne two concerts of 19 new works were presented by the Melbourne Composers’ League in just one day. The MCL is a rarity in Australia - a group of composers who band together to present new music with a focus on composers from Victoria. Appropriate then that the concert was held in the grounds of the important mid-20th century artist colony, a place devoted to communal artistic endeavours.

Encompassing composers of differing professional development, MCL concerts can be varied but all surely offer up a few gems. There was no theme in the selection for this one day mini festival and the music presented was a cross section from some of the members. And still it ran like clockwork due to the sterling efforts of co-curators Johanna Selleck (composer/flautist) and Colin McKellar.
