Regular price $50.00 Sale

Una Bourne (1882-1974)

23 piano solos from 1897 (aged 5 years) to 1927 are represented in this collection and includes biographical notes about the composer, editorial and performance notes about each piano composition, the scores and a recording by Jeanell Carrigan of all works in the hard copy.

“The distinction of Miss Una Bourne’s playing seems to lie in the fact that the imagination and thought by which she has formed her musical conceptions is perfectly expressed in her technique.”

“As a pianist Una Bourne plays with her mind and her brain and her heart, as well as her fingers and is the most perfect concert artist to ever grace a concert platform”

The above quotes describing the wonderful musicianship and deft technique of Una Bourne are echoed in every account, suggesting that she certainly must have been an exceptional musician and pianist.

Unpublished piano solos also found in the archives include three more difficult works:
Valse Lente (unpublished)
Menuet (unpublished)
Papillons (unpublished)

Researched and edited by Jeanell Carrigan
