By Mirrie Hill

Regular price $55.00 Sale


Mirrie Hill (1889-1986)

27 piano solos, composed between  1909 and 1973.  The hard copy volume includes a CD of these works.

Mirrie Hill contributed greatly to Australian music as a pianist, composer, teacher, and examiner. In her 76 years as a composer Mirrie wrote approximately 554 compositions many of which were published. 

In her immense output of piano music there are several works that stand out as providing a good indication of her style. Although the title ‘miniaturist’ is seen by some as derogatory it is one often applied to Robert Schumann as well as many other notable composers. It can be argued that Schumann’s best and most successful works are those short movements in his larger collections of piano works.

In this volume there are many previously unpublished works as well as those composed quite early in her life when she would have been able to perform the works herself.

More comprehensive biographical notes are within the volume which also includes a CD of all the works.
