Peter Sculthorpe: Piano Music
30 years of piano music by Peter Sculthorpe, one of Australia's finest composers. With exemplary performances by The Team of Pianists, Michael Hannan and Sculthorpe himself.
Contains 30 years of Sculthorpe's compositions for piano, from the versatile miniature duets through to the charming 'Rose Bay Quadrilles' and the eclectic scraping sounds of 'Koto I and II'. Also includes 'Sonatina (1954)',' Night Pieces', 'Callabonna', 'Mountains', 'Dijilile', 'Nocturnal', 'Sea Chant', 'Left Bank Waltz' and 'Landscape'.
Born in Launceston, Tasmania in 1929 and passing away in 2014, Peter Sculthorpe was one of Australia's best-known composers and a fine pianist. Recordings of Sculthorpe's orchestral works and music for strings have won a number of Australian Record Industry Awards (ARIA).
Acclaimed both for its high standards of artistry and professionalism, the Melbourne-based Team of Pianists has captivated audiences in Australia and overseas for nearly twenty years.
“Here we have what must be considered the definitive recording of Sculthorpe's piano music ... It belongs on the shelves of all those who have an interest in Australian music and what this country has done culturally.”
