"100 Years" by Rita Crews, Julie Spithill

Book

Music Teachers' Association of NSW - 1912 to 2012  
It is the history and pictorial record of the the Association which until 1979 was known as The Musical Association of NSW.  Meticulous records have been kept over the 100 years and these make for fascinating reading and have formed the basis of this publication.  Minutes of over 2000 meetings, newspaper and magazine articles, photographs, conference and concert programmes, all items of significance that contribute to the vibrant life of an organisation - a thumbnail sketch of a progressive and impressive organisation.  It looks at the glowing record of 100 years and the names that have become legendary:  W Arundal Orchard, Joseph Bradley, Godfrey Stirling, Frank Hutchens, Lindley Evans, Alfred Hill, Alexander Sverjensky, Miriam Hyde, Elizabeth Todd, Victor McMahon, Lady Margaret Gordon, Lady Valerie Heinze, Mrs Nancy Post ... the list of distinguished musicians, educators and supporters is endless.  Visiting dignitaries - names like Dame Nellie Melba, Percy Grainger, Sir Granville Bantock and Peter Dawson, added their own contribution and prestige to the Association.

1. HSC Music 1 & 2, Film and TV Music - Book 1 by Meryl Jackson-Kew, Aleksandar Vujic

Teaching Resource

A comprehensive study workbook with illustrations, questions, activities and answers within the topic Radio, Film, Television and Multi-Media.

This book is the first in a series of booklets that are topic based and are suitable for study in Preliminary and HSC courses of Music in the NSW BOSTES syllabi. Each topic booklet explores the six concepts of music- pitch, duration, texture, tone colour, structure, dynamics and expressive techniques as well as unity and contrast.  All the exercises and questions throughout are designed to be analysed at the student’s pace and not under examination conditions. They can be used to enhance practise in writing graphic notation and aural analysis. Each listening example has a main question on which to focus, as well as the inclusion of other activities which will provide a variety of ways to approach aural analysis. At the conclusion of each listening example is a summary of the unity and contrast found within the music.  We have given our own interpretation of how each question can be approached and this can be used as a guide to the analysis of the musical themes.  Written 2016

Albert Elea Namatjira by Michael Atherton

Score

SATB choir, c.6'30
This musical homage to Aboriginal artist, Namatjira (1902-1959) is a reworking of the 1996 composition commissioned by the Australian Voices Youth Choir. The musical texture is concerned with the layering and juxtaposition of colour, the subtlety of the painter’s use of shadow and a sense of bursting into light.  For discounted price on multiple copies contact keats@wirripang.com.au

Australian Heritage Collection Volume I by Jeanell Carrigan

Album

 Piano music by Australian Women Composers
There were many examples in the early part of the twentieth century in Australia of women who were exceptional pianists and who also wrote a great number of piano works. Many of these women were labelled child prodigies and obviously showed enormous potential and musical ability. These women performed as soloists and accompanists and contributed hugely to the musical and cultural life in Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide. They also left a large collection of compositions written for the solo keyboard.

To produce these three volumes within this Collection, Dr Jeanell Carrigan has researched and edited almost 50 works of Australian women composers, most of which have never been published. Each volume is accompanied by a CD of its works recorded by Jeanell. and biographical notes on each composer. All the composers were born between 1862 and 1915.  Many of them lived for the whole of the twentieth century, and in that time experienced many changes in the way music was composed, thought about  written about and performed.  Of course, they experienced many difficulties.  To be a composer in Australia during this period was a difficult enough, and to be a woman, was short of impossible!

The composers in this volume:  

Ada Maud Fitz-Stubbs (1861-1949); Mona McBurney (1862-1932); Florence Donaldson Ewart (1864-1949); Mary Bowden (1868-1950); (Annie) May Summerbelle (1868-1949); Esther Khan (1877-1962); Una Bounre (1882-1974); May Brahe (1855-1956) and Katherine (Kitty) Parker (1886-1971)
