Presteigne Festival pays tribute to Peter Sculthorpe (29 April 1929 – 8 August 2014)

It is with great sadness that we announce the death on 8 August of Australian composer Peter Sculthorpe in Sydney, at the age of eighty-five. Peter had a truly original musical voice and was the indisputable father of Australian music, having changed Australia’s musical landscape greatly over a career spanning six decades. He was a great friend to the Presteigne Festival.
