The Creation of the World (La Création du monde) outlines the creation of the world base on African folk mythology. In 1922, Darius Milhaud visited Harlem in New York and experienced live jazz music which had a lasting impact on his compositions. He wrote this work the year afterwards, bringing to life the ancient story in a spectacular jazz/classical fusion.
The Moldau is a symphonic poem that evokes the flow of the Moldau River, from its source in the Bohemian Mountains, through the Czech countryside past villages and through rapids, finally reaching its majestic end at the sea. The pieces captures in music Biedrich Smetana’s love of his homeland.
Kakadu is inspired by the Kakadu National Park in northern Australia. This enormous wilderness area stretches from coastal tidal plains to rugged mountain plateaux, and in it may be found the living culture of its Aboriginal inhabitants, dating back for fifty thousand years. The work is concerned with Peter Sculthorpe’s feelings about the place; its landscape, its change of seasons, its dry season and its wet, its cycle of life and death.
Aspen Jubilee is inspired by the stupendous beauty of the Rocky mountains in Colorado. Ron Nelson speaks of the “blinding sunlight of snow-covered peaks; of the frontier spirit of old Aspen with its brash, funny dynamism, its Gorny ragtag Fourth of July parades and fireworks displays. I was also thinking about indescribably beautiful nights under star filled skies.”
Earth, Water, Sun, Wind is a symphony for concert band that varies from being purely descriptive of the movements’ titles to specific sound painting. “Earth” is pure music and symbolises a celebration of the existance of life and the diversity of the planet; “Water” inspires the listener the conjure up their own ‘water pictures’; “Sun” is intended to describe the searing heat and haze of the desert and the unbearable heat of the midday sun; “Wind” juxtaposes the wind’s power to drive a storm of destruction against its ability to allow a child to fly a kite in the sky.
