Product details

Peter Sculthorpe: String Quartet No. 16 music resource kit investigates the creative process of musical composition and the connection of this work to refugees in Australia's detention centres. While the kit is particularly suitable for senior students, it could also be used with young students, specifically in relation to the broader issue of refugees in detention becoming the impetus for musical composition.
Topics discussed in the kit include traditional songs or chants as the basis for a composition, characteristic techniques and special effects used by Peter Sculthorpe in his String Quartet No. 16, and extramusical ideas as inspiration for works of music.
The kit includes a music study guide, a full score of the String Quartet No. 16, and a CD containing a recording of the work by the Goldner String Quartet.

Contents note: Teacher's resource kit booklet -- score of String quartet no. 16 -- CD 'String quartets volume 3' performed by the Goldner String Quartet.
