This week's Summer CD Review Proms Composer is the Australian Brett Dean whose music is 'an exploration of melodic lines in all their different forms'. His artistry with the manipulation of melody is most prominent in works featuring the human voice or solo instruments. His "Electric Prelude" was very well received at last year's Proms, while in this summer's festival his Pastoral Symphony will be performed alongside that of Beethoven.
