The ArtSound Recorded Music Society

ArtSound presenters’ and listeners’ much-loved recordings

In 1944, the Canberra Recorded Music Society began meeting at Albert Hall, the Institute of Anatomy, and other locations to listen to selections from the enormous Carnegie Music Set, which the Carnegie Foundation had given to the people of Canberra. It was kept in the Music Room of Canberra High School (now the ANU School of Art). The federal Minister of the Interior appointed the trustees of the collection.

Welcome now to The ArtSound Recorded Music Society, where ArtSound presenters (and sometimes listeners) share a particularly interesting recording from their collections, and explain why they admire it.
