Sculthorpe, Peter : Three Pieces for Piano


This volume brings together three of Peter Sculthorpe’s most popular piano works:

His 6-minute Djilile (‘whistling-duck on a Billabong’) from 1986/89 is based upon an Aboriginal melody which the composer quoted in his string work Port Essington, Kakadu for orchestra and the trio Dream Tracks. It appears here, with additional material, in a version for solo piano.

A short 4-minute work in three parts, which takes its name from a lake in the desert of South Australia, Callabonna dates from 1963 and was revised in 1989.

Simori is a substantial 11-minute work which is based upon a series of songs belonging to the Simori mountain people of Papua New Guinea, and was composed in 1995 for Ian Munro.
