I recently reviewed Eugene Ughetti’s series of Australian Percussion Solos for RealTime. In true Ughetti fashion, the works commissioned by Ughetti paint a unique portrait of Australian composition (not least because half the composers now live overseas). They also raise questions about funding cycles and audiences. What do we, as listeners, want out of a new work? Exactly how do we want to be challenged?
