The Perth Guitar Quartet - West Australian Landscapes


  • Fri 28 Jul 2023, 7:00pm–9:00pm


All Ages

Listed by


The Perth Guitar Quartet presents a CD-launch concert featuring the world-premiere performance of newly commissioned works for classical guitar quartet inspired by the WA landscape. While much of the Australian guitar repertoire is focused on the natural world, most compositions represent locations in the Eastern States of Australia. West Australian Landscapes is a commissioning project which seeks to shift that balance through the creation of three new works inspired by the beauty of our state.

Supported by a grant from the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, prominent Australian composer Robert Davidson has written a work inspired by the Swan River, Lydia Gardiner inspired by the leaning trees of Greenough, and Nicholas Bannan inspired by native Western Australian bird life. These new works will be premiered in a CD-launch concert at the Perth International Classical Guitar Festival on 28 July 2023, alongside Duncan Gardiner's Stone, Shell, Bone and Feather, inspired by the East Perth Cemeteries.
