A REMARKABLE DOUBLE-SIGNING TO AUSTRALIA. The first Australian classical composer to sign to Universal Music Australia

Real and Right and True marks the debut of prolific Australian composer Calvin Bowman on theDecca (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.

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
