 Update me on new releases by Hill

Alfred Hill (12/16/1869 - 10/30/1960)

The Australian composer, conductor and teacher Alfred Hill studied in Leipzig in the late 1880s, continuing, as a composer, the traditions in which he had been trained, writing music that suggests the work of a latter-day Australian Dvořák. His early musical employment was in New Zealand; he moved back to Australia in 1897, involving himself in opera and operetta, and teaching at the New South Wales State Conservatory until a dispute led to his resignation in 1934.

Stage Works

Hill’s works for the theatre include a number of romantic comic operas, principally staged in Sydney.

Instrumental Music

Hill’s instrumental music sometimes reflects his interest in aboriginal melodies. His 13 symphonies include a number of reworkings of earlier string quartets.
