In composing "Australian Bushfire" Rosalind Carlson takes you into her past background with vivid childhood memories of many bushfires which passed by her home in Wahroonga (N.S.W., Australia)

She writes:

"This music is somewhat volatile, for I am tracing the course of the bushfire from its inception in the distance to its devastating damage as it passes in fury.  Then the crying of the land once the fire passes, and the future renewal of the bush that will follow in time, with the regrowth of new shoots.

As a child our family lived in the bush.  Each summer I witnessed bushfires at close range.  It was one of the most dramatic happenings in my young life.  The smell of the fire would first alert us.  Because we lived on a high ridge with a panoramic view over the local valleys we could see the smoke travelling in the gullies towards our home in Wahroonga (N.S.W. Australia)."
