Journeys into Australia

Peter Sculthorpe is one of Australia’s greatest contemporary composers, while Garry Shead is one of Australia’s most distinguished visual artists. For many years they have travelled along parallel paths, sharing common interests and common sources of inspiration. In their separate ways, they have explored a fascination with the Australian landscape and its cultural identity.

The Fifth Continent, The Queen and The Ern Malley Suite mark a most remarkable act of collaboration between the composer and the artist. See more
