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 an ongoing interest in, and love for, the Australian coastal landscape.
The first piece, Sea Cliff, is a processional style fanfare for brass and one percussionist (playing a tambour or hand-held drum). The mood of the movement is stately, grand and solemn and features solos for the trumpet and horn players. The movement can be performed with the players processing or it can be played in a normal concert layout with the players on-stage.
Instrumentation: 3 trumpets in B flat, 4 French horns in F, 2 tenor trombone, bass trombone, tuba, percussion (1 player).
Duration: 4 min.
Difficulty: Medium — Good high school to professional range
Commission note: Commissioned by St Peter's Lutheran College.
The work may be performed as a processional or in normal concert on-stage format.
- Inspired by: Landscape and Nature
