Speaking of Music:
Vincent Plush, Sept. 4, 1986

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 109 min
Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA

Composer Vincent Plush is interviewed by Charles Amirkhanian on September 4, 1986, as part of the San Francisco Exploratorium’s Speaking of Music series. Plush is a protégé of Australia's most important living composer Peter Sculthorpe, and could be described as a down under counterpart to the U. S. composer John Adams. Plush's orchestral work "Pacifica" is cut from the same cloth as Adams' "Harmonium" and his work often treats historical Australian figures.
