Abstract

This book examines a selection of works Malcolm Williamson composed in connection with Australia to reveal how he represented aspects of his homeland in music and to trace the various stages of his engagement with the country over the course of his career. It begins with an overview of Williamson's life and relationship with Australia, followed by nine chapters that focus on individual musical works he composed in connection with his homeland, including musical analysis of and historical background on each one. This book aims to further the conversation about Williamson's music and to permit a reassessment of his creative life.
