Memories of a Foreign Land Called Home is a work directly inspired by my Australian experience. The work moves through a number of states that in purely abstract terms recall my impressions of the Australian landscape. These include the soil, tufts of grass, the land as it approaches the coast, sailing ships, the sand of the beaches and the deserts and finally the red interior of Australia. I have recalled these images and used them to underpin the work in two ways: Firstly as memories of the Australia I grew up in as a child. Secondly by revisiting the paintings of Sidney Nolan, an artist who I return to frequently and who I find embodies the iconic and the sublime in the Australian landscape.
Instrumentation: Piano, violin, cello.
Duration: 16 min.
Commission note: Commissioned by the Fidelio Trio with funds from the RVW Trust
- Inspired by: Landscape and Nature
