Peter Sculthorpe tells Charles Southwood how he became well known through his composition, Sun Music. He purged his music of romantic feeling. He is only interested in European music up to the time of Monteverdi. He has been influenced by Asian music, especially Indonesian. The key to all his music is in the bass line. In discussing his composition, "Kakadu", he talks about American interest in Australian music, which follows American interest in Aboriginal painting. He and Charles Southwood discuss the quest for an Australian musical language. Excerpts from his music are heard

The two-time winner of the top Chamber Music America/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming, Del Sol String Quartet team up with didjeridu virtuoso Stephen Kent to bring to life the unique Complete String Quartets with Didjeridu by Australian composer Peter Sculthorpe. Elected an Australia National Trust Living Treasure in 2002, Sculthorpe's output relates closely to Australia's social and physical climate and the Pacific Basin cultures. Since the mid 1980s, Kent pioneered the contemporary use of didjeridu in myriad associations and cross-disciplinary collaborations
