Author

Margaret Sutherland was born into an unusually gifted family. She studied with Edward Goll in Melbourne before embarking on a career as concert pianist and teacher. But composition was her true passion. Despite financial constraints, her determination took her to Europe where she gained a wide acquaintance with the works of major composers such as Debussy, Ravel, Stravinsky, Bartok and the Viennese school. Back in Australia she fought isolation and indifference as, in the words of Roger Covell, she 'naturalised the twentieth century in Australian music'.
