WORLD PREMIERE RECORDINGS IN THE PRESENCE OF THE COMPOSER

Tall Poppies is delighted to present this third volume of Peter Sculthorpe's string quartets as a tribute to him on the occasion of his 80th birthday in April 2009.

This recording was made in the Sydney City Recital Hall in Angel Place in December 2008. The four quartets presented here were written between 1998 and 2007, and present a showcase of Peter’s compositional interests, from close four-part harmony through to dramatic contemporary rhythms and on to melodies of love and anguish.

The performances, as one would expect from musicians of this calibre, are exceptional, and Peter Sculthorpe, present throughout the recordings, is thrilled with the results.

The recording was funded by the Browne family in memory of the music critic Lindsey Browne (1915-2003)

Duration: 76 min.

Liner notes include program notes, and biographical notes on composer and performers.
