As a contemporary Australian composer, concerned with finding an "Australian sound," Peter Sculthorpe incorporated elements of Aboriginal music, Asian music, and other unique compositional devices in his music. This paper investigates Sculthorpe's compositional style through analysis of Requiem: for Cello Alone, Threnody, Into the Dreaming, For Justine, and Sonata for Cello Alone, in order to explore his incorporation of Australian characteristics within the context of idiomatic writing for the solo cello.
