Sheet Music: Score
An Australian concert overture / Christopher Sainsbury.
by Christopher Sainsbury (1985)
Bursting with positivity, it is essentially an unapologetically melodic piece, full of rich counterpoints, and underscored by rhythmic drive from start to finish apart from one reflective middle slow section. 30 years later it's one of my favourite pieces.
