'String Quartet No 12 (From Ubirr)' reviews

‘The arrival of a white didjeridu player, David Coulter, to join the quartet – looked like a Kronos contrivance.  To start, it buzzed away on its bass note as the strings rhapsodized - Sculthorpe made his getaway from post-War modernism early enough to be utterly secure in his language now, making many younger escapees sound nervous and contrived by comparison.  The lyrical flow, ever changing yet always the same – drew playing of full-hearted passion.’
The Independent (UK) (Robert Maycock), 25 July 1994
