This piece was written in 1988 for a beginner guitar group at Ascham School, Sydney, to celebrate the Australia's bicentennial. It is designed to be performed by a teacher (or advanced student) and a group of relative beginners. The teacher should conduct or cue from the score and while the student parts are very simple the aim is to develop good ensemble skills. The piece is meant to reflect the first encounters between whites and aboriginals and the titles of the individual sections are self-explanatory.
Instrumentation: Solo guitar and 3-part guitar ensemble.
Duration: 4 min.
Difficulty: Easy — Guitars 1, 2 and 3 are very easy; the solo part is suited to an advanced student or teacher
Contents note: 1. Setting sail -- 2. The arrival -- 3. The encounter.
Dedication note: Dedicated to Raffaele Agostino
Written for: Ascham School
