Sheet Music: Score
Esperance : for chamber orchestra / Carl Vine.
by Carl Vine (1994)
The word 'esperance' is not only a reassuring Old English sentiment of hope but also the name of an isolated town on the south coast of Western Australia. While not exactly in the middle of nowhere, this small outpost is certainly on the edge of it. The incredible optimism of the European settlers who arrived at one of the most remote parts of this vast continent and called it 'Hope' speaks of some of the most admirable qualities in Australia's recent heritage: the daring to attempt the improbable, and the tenacity to make it work.
