Product Description

About the Author

Stephen Pleskun was born 6 weeks prematurely in Crown Street Women's Hospital in Sydney on 8th December 1955. Having taken music as an elective subject at High School, he started to consider the subject seriously during the 1970's and took private lessons with Clarence Albert Phillips (harmony ad counterpoint), Anatolij Mirosznyk (piano) and Dave Martin (jazz). During this time, Stephen secured occasional work as a music teacher before spending 4 years at Sydney University studying English, Philosophy, Education and Medieval History, the first 3 at honours level. From 1986 onwards, Stephen wrote and presented lectures on the History and Development of Western Music at the Liverpool Academy of Music. The Chronological History of Australian Composers and their Compositions was begun in January 2008 and continues to be researched, compiled and edited to this day.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
This publication is a long time overdue. A most comprehensive anthology which chronologically presents the history of Australia's Composers and their Compositions from federation (1901) through to present day. Mr. Stephen Pleskun has been most thorough and professional in his exhaustive compilation of these four volumes. This publication MUST seriously be included in the collection of EVERY Library and Educational Institution throughout Australia - (if not globally.) An invaluable resource for students of music, as well as anyone who has an interest in the development of Australia's cultural/musical identity.
