Migrations in Music - Grades 5 - 6 by Amanda Handel

Album

Ten pieces for solo piano - grades 5 - 6 (with a 7th grade option).
Exploring the world of vibrant, spicy, curious and lush harmonies in different modes and meters.   
The 10 pieces are presented in five pairs each reflecting a distinctive style.  The first of each pair is grade 5 and its partner is grade 6 and when each pair is combined as a single piece, the level would be grade 7.

Shiraz by Amanda Handel

Score and part

Flute and piano, c.4'50.  Certificate of Performance level
Wine is the symbol of the soul's evolution...
When the self turns into something different to what is was before,
it is like the soul being born again... the grape turning into wine.
This is the essence of all philosophy and the secret of mysticism.   
(Hazrat Inayat Khan)
Composed 2014

Zardash by Amanda Handel

Score

Solo piano, c.4'0
The word "Zardash" dates back to the times of Zarathustra.  It is the symbol of the gold disc-like halo - signifying power, brilliance and the sun.  The composition is loosely based on the Greek myth of Icarus, in his exultant and dangerous flight towards the sun.
Zardash was written for Aaron McMillan who first recorded and performed the piece in his project: "Arc of Light".  Aaron was a well celebrated young Australian pianist who tragically lost his life to a brain tumor in 2007.  Audio sample from "Arch of Light" used with permission.
Composed 2001
