Solace was written in March 1981 for performance by the University of Queensland Orchestra where Schultz was then a student. They gave its premiere at the opening concert of the Musicological Society of Australia Conference in Brisbane that year. Subsequent performances include the Queensland Symphony Orchestra and the Kings College London Orchestra.
The work is scored for chamber orchestra and is a lyrical work where the musical material slowly expands from a four note Phrygian motif heard at the opening in divisi cellos.
Instrumentation: Flute (doubling alto flute), clarinet in B flat, bassoon, horn in F, trumpet in C, percussion (one player), piano, strings (220.127.116.11.2).
Duration: 7 min.
First performance: by University of Queensland Orchestra — Aug 81. MSA Conference, Uuniversity of Queensland, Brisbane
