Product details

Peter Sculthorpe, whose death in August 2014 was mourned throughout the musical world, was the leading Australian composer of his generation.

In this DVD, filmed on the occasion of the composer's 83rd birthday in 2012, Sculthorpe tells the story of his life and career, relating it to his ground-breaking string quartets - live performances of which intersperse the film.

This is a vital document of one of Australia's most significant cultural figures, as well as featuring brilliant performances from the Goldner String Quartet, who enjoyed a long and fruitful collaboration with Sculthorpe.

The Goldner String Quartet has widespread and long-standing recognition for excellence, not only as Australia's pre-eminent string quartet, but as an ensemble of international significance, favourably compared with the best in the world. Launched for the 1995 season, it has since performed around the globe in the world's most prestigious concert venues and made numerous acclaimed recordings.

Duration: 98 min.
