Programme Notes
From Kakadu for solo harp (1994), arr. Marshall McGuire This work, originally for guitar, is in four sections: Grave, Comodo, Misterioso, and Cantando. The first and third sections are based upon the main theme of my orchestra piece, Kakadu (1988), and the fourth section grows from it into a long, singing line. The work is an intimate one, being concerned with the deep contentment I feel whenever I return to Australia’s outback. This feeling is ever-present in the dance-like second section, in the singing line of the final Cantando section, and in its counterpoint as well. Peter Sculthorpe
