‘Luz meridional’ or ‘Southern Light’ was commissioned by Julian Burnside AO QC and especially composed for Australian pianist Michael Kieran Harvey as part of a 2009 State Library of Victoria Creative Fellowship, and while each individual movement pays homage to one of twenty-four early Australian composers, the work as a whole represents a Homenaje a Henry Cowell (1897-1965).
The twenty-four solo piano études incorporate quotations from early Australian composers sourced from the State Library of Victoria’s Australian Manuscripts collection, and represents a composition project dedicated to researching melodic material from the State Library of Victoria’s Australian Manuscripts collection in order to then compose a set of twenty-four études for solo piano, utilizing and transforming this material in various ways.
In 2012, the work was recognized as the Joint-Winner of the Jean Bogan Prize (University of Newcastle, Newcastle, Australia) – Australia’s most prestigious award for classical piano composition.
