To mark the 20th anniversary of the Port Arthur massacre in Tasmania, ABC Classics have digitally released the premiere recording of Matthew Hindson's Lament for cello and orchestra. 
 
Lament is the beautiful slow movement of his extraordinary In Memoriam: Amplified Cello Concerto, and was recorded earlier this year by soloist Sue-Ellen Paulsen with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and Benjamin Northey.  The recording will form part of a forthcoming all-Hindson orchestral disc.
