Creative Artists Fellowship Antartica

http://www.aad.gov.au/default.asp?casid=3892

I wouldn't pass the un-nutworthy clause but I met a former seal researcher who showed me all this spectacular material and told me about these fellowships for creative artists.

She was a very tiny, Nordic lady who caught Weddell Seals. Who did the Antarctic Symphony - Nigel Westlake? Maybe he had one of these grants. This lady said lots of poets, photographers, artists and composers apply for them.
Lunch, very Italian & I bought the best recording ever - Jerusalem by Hesperion XXI -

BTW applications can be made by people from Treaty countries.

Dunno whether Mr Westlake has written such a piece but 'Max' (aka Master of the Queen's Musick - Sir Peter Maxwell Davies) certainly did - his Eighth Symphony. I could post a page of his score to give him an unashamed plug if you like and if Boosey's wouldn't mind (I suspect they wouldn't). His symphonies are fairly good, though still fairly unmemorable thematically, to me at least. Not sure he's got round to his Ninth yet.

He has. It derives, if my memory serves me right, from the music he wrote for a TV series on Antarctica.

Vaughan Williams #7
1949-52
Sinfonia Antartica
For full orchestra, soprano soloist, and women's chorus.
Dedication: To Ernest Irving.
Five movements; Prelude: Andante maestoso; Scherzo: Moderato – poco animando; Landscape: Lento; Intermezzo: Andante sostenuto; Epilogue: Alla marcia moderato (ma non troppo).
Much of this is supposed to have been derived from his score for Scoot of the Antarctic Scoot? Scott with an accent, obviously!

Westlake's is Antarctica: Suite for guitar and orchestra
