Sea Call (1988)

“Brevity is by no means a guide to a piece’s substance. In 2002 the Queensland Conservatorium Brass ensemble played Andrew Schultz’s Sea Call as the opening piece in a festival concert. Played from a balcony behind the audience it was highly successful in evoking a sense of the ‘the dramatic coastline and its inhabitants near Wombarra on the NSW South Coast.’…Sea Call is more distinctive – being a portrait of a location and its people.” [Ben Marks, Portraits: Music for Brass, Sounds Australian, No. 64 2004]

Sea Call, by Andrew Schultz…made a stronger statement, evoking a sense of melancholy meditation, which threatens to engulf the listener.” [Peter McCallum, Sydney Morning Herald, 21 June 1988]
