Misc. Comments

Program Note: Landscape was commissioned by Ensemble 24 and was premiered on their 2000 Asian tour. The area around the Glasshouse Mountains in southeast Queensland is the inspiration for the work. This is a landscape dominated by boldly shaped mountains, possessing for me a sense of great age and a certain violence - these mountains were once inside volcanoes. There is a great variety of topography in Landscape's landscape, including large placid lakes, ocean, wide plains, rainforest and scrubby bush. The music reflects this diversity with a range of contrasting textures.
