Facets of a false anthem / Luke Styles.

Library shelf no. 785.714/STY 1 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

This four-movement string quartet is based around the Australian folk song Waltzing Matilda. The song underlines much of the harmony and melodic writing in the piece, though this is often hidden deep below the surface of the music.

Having become a British citizen in 2011 I wanted to create a work that fused my new nationality with that of my place of birth.
