As one of Australia's 100 National Living Treasures, Peter Sculthorpe has assumed iconic status. While much has been written about his life and music, there have been no studies exploring his influence on other composers. With its broad social and historical context, this book invites the reader to share in the experiences of his career as a teacher of composition. Through a series of interviews, a clear picture emerges about the impact of his work and the legacy he leaves behind.

Fascinating Insights


Written in a way that makes classical music relevant and accessible to everyday people. Some sections are a bit technical (easily skipped over without missing the point) but would be brilliant for students of music. I loved the insights into Australian culture and society, as shown through its music. Really enlightening.
