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 second piece, Horizon, is the longest of the three. Horizon presents, in the foreground, lyrical and personal solos for clarinet, flute, alto saxophone and muted trumpet against a distant background of rumbling percussion and slow-moving bass instruments. Finally, the movement erupts into excitement as the steady accumulation of ideas reaches catharsis. Perhaps the now distant memories of long car trips taken over flat expenses of the New South Wales and Queensland outback - where the view from the back seat seemed always to be ringed by an endless horizon of eye-popping flatness broken only by the occasional miserable half-dead tree - were on my mind.
