Peter Sculthorpe : the making of an Australian composer / Graeme Skinner.
Australian Artists Analysed in this Book
Peter Sculthorpe is Australia's best-known living composer and is widely held to be the most important creative musical spirit the country has produced. Beautifully written and fastidiously reasearched, this authorised biography provides an insight into Sculthorpe's formative years: his quest for a personal voice, and his arrival - through many creative friendships and collaborations - at a place in the collective heart of the nation. It charts the realisation of a youthful vocation to become not merely a composer, but an Australian composer.
Bibliography: p. 653-676.
