Commissioned by the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra to mark Tasmania's Bicentenary, 'River Mountain Sky' suggests an impression of the beautiful island that has been my home since 1998. It celebrates a landscape of rivers and mountains, painted by orange and pink skies at dawn and dusk; a landscape crowned by dramatic cloud formations that give way to quiet nights when stars sparkle across a clear clean southern sky. 'River Mountain Sky' portrays mist over the estuary, sunshine dancing off a bright blue river and cascades of rushing water, yielding to darkness and the peace of evening.
Commissioned by Symphony Australia for the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra with financial assistance from the Australian Government through the Australian Council, its arts funding and advisory body
