Peter Sculthorpe obituary. Leading contemporary composer whose work was inspired by the landscape and culture of his native Australia. Peter Sculthorpe, who has died aged 85, was Australia's foremost contemporary composer. From the start of his career, he set out to create music that would not depend on European manners and cultural traditions, but would be specifically Australian in idiom. His contemporaries Russell Drysdale (a close friend), Arthur Boyd and Sidney Nolan had established a true national school in painting; like them, Peter believed that Australia is primarily a visual culture, dominated by its landscape. He was a natural teacher, and his pupils included Ross Edwards, Barry Conyngham and Anne Boyd, now the senior figures in Australian music. He lived in Sydney for the remainder of his life.
