Sculthorpe - ABC Recordings
Sculthorpe - ABC Recordings (ABC Classics 481 1293)
SKU: 16344
AU $89.80

Label: ABC Classics Cat. No.: 481 1293 Medium: CD+DVD No. Discs: 11

Peter Sculthorpe, named Australia's greatest composer by Limelight Magazine shortly after his death in August 2014, had a long and fruitful relationship with ABC Classics. In this deluxe box set, the ABC recordings of his music are brought together for the first time to form a remarkable tribute to one of the world's great composers.

Sculthorpe created an Australian classical music that for the first time spoke directly of the land, the people and the spirit of this country. His music opened up new possibilities for Australian composers, and brought a distinctively Australian voice to the concert halls of the world.

This 10CD collection celebrates four decades of ABC recordings of Sculthorpe's orchestral music, including the acclaimed Sun Music, Earth Cry, Quamby and Requiem. The iconic performances feature an array of the finest Australian orchestras, conductors and soloists; and the newly-commissioned and extensive note from Dr Graeme Skinner provides a thorough introduction to the music of this revered composer.

Also included in this set is the first-ever release of the DVD Peter Sculthorpe - The Quartets, in which the composer surveys his life and career as seen through the prism of his string quartets - as performed by the Goldner String Quartet.
