Remembering Sculthorpe: Works for Solo Piano

Acclaimed concert pianist Tamara-Anna Cislowska presents a moving and evocative recital of works by Peter Sculthorpe spanning seven decades. From his earliest work for solo piano,Nocturne (1945) through to his last, Riverina (2011), this program takes us on the journey of his remarkable career.

Unique and unforgettable, Sculthorpe’s imagery is that of a composer, a dreamer, and a man with an incomparable understanding of our land, our people and our hearts.

In 2014, ABC Classics released Cislowska’s double CD, Peter Sculthorpe: Complete Works for Solo Piano, deemed ‘Recording of the Month’ in BBC Music Magazine, and described as ‘a profoundly affecting release’ by Gramophone magazine. At the age of 14, Cislowska met Sculthorpe for the first time and performed his Piano Concerto with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, and so began a lifelong friendship. Cislowska was Sculthorpe’s choice for the recording of this CD.

Proudly presented by Trinity Grammar School’s Society of the Arts as part of its 2015 Concert Series.
