The young Peter Sculthorpe as a secret agent.

This year marks the 85th Anniversary of Peter Sculthorpe.

To celebrate this milestone, Ady will be performing Sculthorpe’s Third String Sonata, based upon the composer’s Eleventh String Quartet, which was written for the Kronos Quartet .

During an interview in 2009, Sculthorpe talks about his very first steps as a composer, his love of the interior of Australia, and briefly the compositional techniques that he uses to describe the countryside.

Do come along and join us as we celebrate Sculthorpe, and others, as part of our next concert on the 10th of May.

See you then!
