Work Overview

The three pieces that make up the St Peter's Suite were written in the first half of 2014 in response to a commission from St Peter's Lutheran College in Brisbane, the school where I attended high school in the 1970s. Each of the pieces can be performed on its own or in any combination with one or both of the other pieces. The three pieces are linked by my ongoing interest in, and love for, the Australian coastal landscape.

The third piece is called Fortress and here the sound world is more violent and dramatic than the earlier pieces with percussive writing of a brutal ilk juxtaposed with brass fanfares, insistent and grotesque bass lines, and wild trills in the upper woodwind parts. The piece proceeds like a joyous parade of the ugly, demented but determined denizens of a cliff-top citadel.
