The music of Australian composer Lachlan Skipworth has been described as featuring “bold, innovative textures, and compelling melody”. His individual and highly personal compositional language is coloured by three years spent in Japan, where his immersion in the study of the shakuhachi bamboo flute inevitably became a part of his muse.

He has recently been awarded the coveted Paul Lowin prize for orchestral composition for his Concerto for Clarinet and Orchestra (2014), which was premiered by the West Australian Symphony Orchestra with whom he is currently composer-in-residence.

Lachlan Skipworth’s deeply moving clarinet quintet “The Eternal”, was premiered here, at the "GROVE CLASSICS" 2017 in its West Australian premiere, and presented by Lachlan Skipworth, conducting, and local clarinet hero Ashley William Smith joined by some of Perth’s finest string players - Akiko Miyazawa (Violin), Kate Sullivan (Violin), Ben Caddy (Viola), and Jon Tooby (Cello).
