Each movement the orchestral suite describes different images of the Tasmanian landscape that I had in my mind at the time of writing: the first, the wild rocky southern coastline of Tasmania with seas pounding against the cliffs; the second, the beautiful Broad River on a summers day; and the third, mist rising from lake St. Claire to reveal the surrounding mountains.

Duration: 18 min.
