Beauty was written as a celebratory work for the 25th anniversary of The Australia Ensemble, one of Australia's great chamber music groups.
The piece features the cello as a soloist, making specific reference to the tone colour of the cellist for whom it was written, Julian Smiles.
As the title may suggest, the guiding source of inspiration of this work was to capture and develop material based upon the capabilities of the cello to invoke lyrical, cantabile material, both as a soloist but also within a soloistic role in a chamber music context.
Instrumentation: Solo cello, flute, clarinet, piano, 2 violins, viola.
Duration: 6 min.
Written for: Australia Ensemble
Commission note: Written in honour of the Australia Ensemble's 30th season
