    Wouldn’t it be nice if those who ordered the titles (that are out of stock) can “rip” the cd and upload to cloud storage for everyone else who missed out? Or would that be considered copyright infringement (even though it’s free)?

    Only two CDs left:

    1: A Toast To Melba by Lorine Gore

    Description
    Before ‘La Stupenda’ came ‘The Voice’! Dame Nellie Melba was Australia’s first singing sensation, and one of the most famous Australians of her day; idolised in the theatre, mobbed on the street and known by name in even the most remote corners of the country. Soprano Lorina Gore and the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra salute Dame Nellie Melba, Australia’s first singing sensation. Born in Richmond, Victoria, in 1861, Melba was the first Australian classical musician to receive major international recognition, following her operatic debut in Brussels in 1887. That first appearance (as Gilda in Rigoletto) was described by a famous German critic as "an instant triumph of the most emphatic kind”, and quickly led to debuts at Covent Garden, the Paris Opera and at New York’s Metropolitan Opera. One of the undoubted stars of the ‘Golden Age of Opera’ in the mid-to-late 19th century, Melba is also familiar to Australians through the dishes named after her – most famously the Peach Melba, but also Melba toast – and she also features on the Australian $100 banknote. Lorina Gore is a Helpmann and Green Room Award-winning soprano and has been a principal artist with Opera Australia since 2008. Her most recent credits include performing Musetta in La bohème at the Hanoi Opera in Vietnam, Roxana in Szymanowski’s King Roger for Opera Australia, and her critically acclaimed performance as Ophelia in Brett Dean’s Hamlet at the 2018 Adelaide Festival. A Toast to Melba sees Lorina reunite with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and Marko Letonja, their Chief Conductor and Artistic Director, following the success of their collaboration on a disc of Johann Strauss: Waltzes and Arias, released on ABC Classics in 2016.

    2: Island Songs by Amy Dickson

    Description
    Twice Grammy-nominated AMY DICKSON made history by becoming the first saxophonist and the first Australian to win the 2013 MasterCard Breakthrough Artist of the Year Classic Brit Award. Recognised widely for her remarkable and distinctive tone and exceptional musicality, she has performed throughout the world in prestigious venues such as the Wigmore Hall, the Royal Albert Hall and the Sydney Opera House, and as a soloist with orchestras including the Philharmonia Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Ulster Orchestra, Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and the Vienna Chamber Orchestra. PETER SCULTHORPES Island Songs contains some of the most beguilingly lyrical music written by the foremost Australian composer of his generation, whose death in August 2014 was lamented throughout the world. The work is based on three melodies from Australias far north, including the much-loved Djilile. ROSS EDWARDS Full Moon Dances is made up of five seamless movements, creating a kaleidoscope of sound featuring fragments of birdsong, plainsong, drones and Indigenous chants from around the world. These sounds are brought together around the central figure of the solo saxophonist, who acts as Moon Goddess incarnate, source of plant life and protector of the environment. The Siduri Dances, by composer, conductor and violist BRETT DEAN, celebrates another female figure: a wise female divinity from the Epic of Gilgamesh, who dwells by the sea at the ends of the earth and offers sage advice (and a parting drink!) to those travelling to other realms. Island Songs and The Siduri Dances were recorded in the Eugene Goossens Hall, ABC Ultimo, with conductor Benjamin Northey and ARIA-Award-winning producer-engineer Virginia Read; Full Moon Dances was recorded live in the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House with Miguel Harth-Bedoya on the podium.

      yeah I just listened to both on Apple Music and "a toast to melba" is excellent. Amy Dickson is also very powerful album (first time I've heard saxophone on a classical album :)

      I wish I got here earlier for the other albums though I usually love holding CDs in my hand rather than these streaming services these days.. Streaming probably has same quality but there is something about holding a physical disc/vinyl etc in your hands!

      • +1 vote

        I suspect streaming services do not broadcast in the same quality as a CD.

        A CD takes about 750 MB (3/4 of 1 Gig) if memory serves.

        And I think streaming services use various compression methods to minimise data use, then there are bit rates which I think are higher on a CD.

        Streaming loses some of the "depth" of the audio as a result, but I think you'd have to pay very close attention to notice the difference.
