About

The four works on this CD span a period of composition of just 6 years (1989–95) and for Ross Edwards, Philip Bracanin and Peter Sculthorpe, represents their major work for the instrument.

Sculthorpe’s Nourlangie (previously released on ABC4767627) has gone on to become on of his most performed works and brings vividly to life the expansiveness of the Australian continent.

The Bracanin concerto was commissioned by Karin Schaupp, while still a teenager, and has subsequently become one of the frequently played guitar concertos on Australian radio.

Ross Edwards concerto draws on the rich flora and fauna of Arnhem Land and the magnificent Arafura Sea beyond. In this premiere recording by Karin Schaupp (first released in 2005 on ABC4762270), Karin revels in the ‘Edwards’ sound world’.

The most recent work on this recording is from Richard Charlton, himself a guitarist, who wrote Mosaic for the final concert of the 1995 Darwin International Guitar Festival. Mosaic is a musical expression of Charlton’s memories and impressions of the Northern Territory, from the brilliant colours of earth and sky to the exhilarating power of a tropical storm.
 
Karin Schaupp is one of the most outstanding guitarists on the international scene, acclaimed not only for her breath-taking technical mastery, but also for the passion and intensity of her playing, inspiring several composers to write works especially for her. Karin Schaupp performs widely as a recitalist, concerto soloist and festival guest, and has given countless recitals in Australia, Europe, Asia, the US, Mexico and Canada. While still in her teens, she won prizes at international competitions in Lagonegro, Italy and Madrid, Spain, where she was also awarded the special competition prize for the Best Interpretation of Spanish Music.
