The Attraction of Opposites: The Music of George Palmer

Following the screening of a very special episode of ABC TV’s Australian Story the ABC’s switchboards were inundated with requests for a recording of the music composed by the story’s subject: Justice George Palmer, a judge of the Supreme Court of New South Wales and a gifted composer. His music is instantly appealing and skilfully crafted.
