Australian Piano Anthology for the 21st Century - Vol. One by Katie Zhukov

CD

Piano music by Australian composers played by Katie Zhukov.
It became apparent that there was a need for new piano works which represented contemporary Australian composers.  Wirripang approached its composers who, with their magnificient response, produced so many excellent works. 46 compositions were finally chosen, edited and critiqued by Katie Zhukov, and were embodied in three albums of sheet music each accompanied by a CD of the pieces recorded by Katie. 
It was from these recordings by Katie that this CD evolved. It is a collection of very pleasant, listenable and varied piano music and representative of the very high standard of work being written by Wirripang Australian composers.

Chameleon by Betty Beath

score

Bass Clarinet solo, c.1'45. Grade 5 AMEB List C 2009
The Clarinet has an opportunity to experiment with colour and timbre. It is a transposed score and when played by the Bass Clarinet it will sound a ninth lower than it appears here and for the B flat Clarinet it will sound just a tone lower. It is a short, bright, lively little piece with a middle section which gives opportunity for the production of warm, smooth, flowing tone.
