  • Nigel Westlake's career in music has spanned more than 3 decades. He studied the clarinet with his father, Donald Westlake (a prominent Australian musician & principal clarinetist with the Sydney Symphony orchestra 1961-1979) & subsequently left school early to pursue a performance career in music. Nigel toured Australia & the world playing with ballet companies, a circus troupe, chamber music groups, fusion bands & orchestras to the cities of London, New York, Rome, Washington, Tokyo, Beijing, Paris, Amsterdam, Vancouver, Moscow, Hong Kong, Berlin, New Delhi & Singapore to name but a few. His interest in composition dates from the late 1970's when he formed a classical/jazz-rock/world-music fusion band to play original music. During this time he started to receive offers to compose for radio & circus. Commissions for TV & film soon followed.

    Comments:

    This is a very nice piece but I must say I was a little disappointed with the presentation. It looks like a bunch of photocopies, which I wouldn't expect for a 45 dollar piece.
