LAP Lambert Academic Publishing Riccardo Formosa is well known in the music industry as a former member of the Little River Band and currently as an award winning arranger and composer for advertising and television. However, Formosa also enjoyed a brief but stellar career as a contemporary classical composer in the 1980s, making an indelible mark on Australian music. His concert music, combining colourful instrumental writing with a focus on composition technique, established a new standard amongst his contemporaries. This book takes Formosa''s last work “Vertigo” and attempts to reconstruct his working methods and composition technique through a rigorous examination of the score.
