Realm and Resonance
From the frozen, bleached landscape of Finland to the sundrenched wilderness of the Australian bush, this programme seeks to explore nationalism and identity in sound as we celebrate Jean Sibelius’ 150th birthday and pay tribute to Australia’s Peter Sculthorpe.
While on the surface it might appear to be painting a picture – what I’m really doing is seeking the sacred in nature – Peter Sculthorpe (1929-2014).
