Classical Discoveries will present the music of
Peter Sculthorpe in the composer's memory.

The following tribute, which begins below, was written by the composer's friend and former student, Ross Edwards

On 8 August 2014 my dear friend and former teacher, the eminent Australian composer Peter Sculthorpe, passed away in Sydney after a long illness.
I first met Peter as a student, when he joined the Music Faculty of Sydney University.
That was 51 years ago. I used to work for him in the vacations as copyist, phone and letter answerer, coffee maker etc. - an infinitely more rewarding holiday job than sorting mail! Peter treated his students as apprentices. His house was like a workshop where an open, friendly atmosphere prevailed.
(by Ross Edwards)

Featured will be the following works by Peter Sculthorpe:
Kakadu for Orchestra
Piano Concerto
String Quartet No. 15
plus other works
