Each movement of the orchestral suite describes an image of the Tasmanian landscape that I had in my head at the time of writing: the first, the wild rocky southern coastline of Tasmania with seas pounding against the cliffs; the second, the beautiful Broad River in Southern Tasmania on a summers day; and the third, mist rising from lake St. Claire to reveal the surrounding mountains.
This piece was recorded by the Russian Philharmonic in Moscow in 2009 as part of a privately funded project to record a disk of Matthew’s orchestral music. View details of the album “Echoes“.
