By Peter Mcnamara

Regular price $60.00 Sale

Clarinet in Bb, percussion, violin and cello, c.10.00

Commissioned for Ensemble Offspring as part of the Sibelius Awards 'Emerging Composer' commission and represents the "Adelaide Hills" district in South Australia. This area has a very distinct German/Australian quality, due to the many Prussian immigrants that settled in the area after escaping political uncertainty and discrimination during the 1830s. To represent this German/Australian fusion, the work's pitch material is based on a 9-note motif from Beethoven's Kakadu Variations Op. 121a.
