Piccolo Victory, Images of Colonial Australia, by Betty Beath

PICCOLO VICTORY, Images of Colonial Australia, was commissioned by and dedicated to the Brisbane Baroque Trio and was first performed in 1982. In this piece I wanted to show, in a slightly ironic manner, images of the colonisation of Australia and to evoke some of our folklore. It was important to me to have the work begin and end with an Aboriginal theme, using didgeridu and clap-sticks as well as the Trio, to indicate the wonderful resilience of the Aboriginal race. - Betty Beath
