Programme Notes
From Kakadu (1983) This work is in four sections: Grave; Comodo; Misterioso; Cantando. The first and third sections are based upon the main theme of my orchestral piece Kakadu (1988) melody; and the fourth section grows from it into a long, singing line. The work is an intimate one, being concerned with the deep contentment that I feel whenever I return to Australia’s outback. This feeling is ever-present in the dance-like second section, and in the singing line, and its counterpoint, of the final Cantando section. Commissioned by the Shell Darwin International Guitar Festival, with assistance from the Performing Arts Board of Australia Council, From Kakadu is dedicated to John Williams. Peter Sculthorpe
