Regular price $25.00 Sale

Jeanell Carrigan (piano)
Described as Koningin van de Klankkleur en Fantasie [Queen of tone colour and fantasy], Dutch born composer, Meta Overman (1907-1993) spent most of her adult life in Perth, Western Australia. Her musical output was extensive and captured here on this CD is much of her piano works.  The composer from an early age had the ability to transform pictures into sounds and this is evident in all her compositions.  Jeanell Carrigan spent many months researching her piano works which resulted in four volumes scripted from Overman's manuscripts, and each with their own CD recording, and this stand-alone disc.  The four volumes of scores are available online.
