The second piece of the Australian Suite is "The Great Barrier Reef". The aquatic nature of this piece is shown through whole tone scales at the beginning and end of the piece. Echoes of this scale can also be found throughout the piece in the LH accompaniment. Students will need a good grasp on pedaling and a sense of atmosphere.
