The works of three Australian composers long inspired by World Music sources comprise this program, featuring Brisbane’s Kurilpa String Quartet.
QCGU composition teacher Gerard Brophy divides his year between Brisbane and Kolkata, drawing inspiration from the tumultuous melting pot of contemporary India. KALIGHAT VOTIVES depicts funeral rites along the Ganges River. Larry Sitsky takes Vedic mysticism as his point of departure in a work for solo oboe, while visiting composer Peter Schaefer draws on meditative practices in his serene, 30-minute long string quartet.
