Peter Sculthorpe's Sonata for Viola and Percussion. Published by Faber Music.
"A rigorously static work. The sonata, the dry gongs and desert glare of its percussion encircling the lonely human agony of the viola, exists in a climate in which emotion is all the fiercer for being half-stifled and haltingly articulate."
~ Sydney Morning Herald (Roger Covell), 15 August 1964
