A Remarkable Double-Signing To Australia. Pianist, Composer, Organist Calvin Bowman Signs To Decca / Universal Music Australia And Universal Music Publishing!

'Real and Right and True' marks the debut of prolific Australian composer Calvin Bowman on the Decca (Australia) label. The album title is derived from a set of nine poems by celebrated Australian cartoonist, writer and painter Michael Leunig, whose beautiful painting 'Autumn Harvest' also graces the cover artwork.

Bowman specialises in artsong and has, to date, written nearly a hundred songs with more constantly on the way. He is a laureate of the Ned Rorem Award for Song Composition, the Diana Barnhart American Song Competition, and the English Poetry and Song Society Artsong Award. Bowman is the only Australian composer to ever have been exclusively featured on the prestigious Decca label aside from Percy Grainger. His songs have been lauded by many luminaries including Barbara Bonney, Sir Neville Marriner and Lee Hoiby, and are recognized for their technical prowess and humanity.

In this remarkable debut offering, three of Australia's finest singers – Sara Macliver, Paul McMahon and Christopher Richardson – join forces to record over fifty of Bowman's acclaimed artsongs.

"It is a joy to be able to represent one of Australia's most acute colourists in music, Calvin Bowman, on Decca (Australia). He is at once, a pianist of distinction, a composer of exquisite subtlety and a musician of huge accomplishment. It is a pleasure to be able to work with him" - Cyrus Meher-Homji, General Manager, Classics & Jazz, Universal Music Australia
