Music Of The Ships
Saturday 22 August, 6pm and 8 pm
The ‘encounter’ between Matthew Flinders and Nicolas Baudin in April 1802 is the starting point to this unique journey into the history of South Australia seen through the music of these European explorers.
Works include Peter Sculthorpe’s Sonata for Strings No. 3, with its second movement based upon an Aboriginal chant transcribed by a member of the 1802 Baudin exploratory expedition and forming the first such music committed to Western notation.
