Bromeliad -The Epic (orchestral)

By Graeme Denniss

Regular price $120.00 Sale

Concertino for solo horn and chamber orchestra, c.12'40

The epic describes a quest where the Horn is the hero of the story, hearing the call and responding to the challenge, as a hero must, although not without moments of trepidation.  After overcoming moments of self-doubt, our hero sets forth resolutely to seek the foe, to the music of a march.  Battle is joined in 12/8 and our hero emerges triumphant, but not without injury.  After withdrawing from the fray to heal, the eventual homecoming results in a hero’s welcome.  Awarded the highest honours by a grateful nation, a rapturous reunion occurs and they celebrate the victory together.

          Echoes of the Hunt

          By Graeme Denniss

          Regular price $25.00 Sale

          Horn and piano, c.5'30. Grade 8

          The horn has long been associated with the hunt.  Signals were played on hunting horns as a way of communicating over long distances and these melodic fragments found their way into many Classical Concerti.

          Written in four sections, the opening music is sombre and mysterious, introducing the main theme and the bitonal chords, which are characteristic of the piano part.  The second and last sections are virtuosic and display the exhilaration of the hunt, but the polyrhythmic music at the heart of the work is elegiac, and can be seen as a lament for all the animals killed in the name of sport.
          Composed 2020

                    Nine pieces for solo piano, suggested grade 3 - 7

                    The Preludes explore some of the expressive sonorities of the piano, within a tonal and sometimes minimalist framework. Some of the Preludes are descriptive, while others explore different emotional states. A wide range of dynamics and rhythmic nuances may be employed to enhance the expression.

                      Piano Progressions Anthology One

                      By Katie Zhukov

                      Regular price $50.00 Sale


                      Beginner to Grade 3

                      48 piano works by Wirripang-published, Australian composers. 

                      New repertoire for Piano Progressions was commissioned from Australian male and female composers to celebrate 10 years since the release of Wirripang Australian Piano Anthology in 2011. The first anthology consisted of three books, with 46 new works from Grade One to Diploma level. The success of this publication had led to two Australian Women Composers’ Anthologies in 2015 and 2019 and a third in 2021, all aiming at intermediate-to-advanced piano students. The feedback from teachers indicated the need for more repertoire at beginner-to-intermediate level, resulting in the two books of Piano Progressions that provide fresh teaching materials from Preliminary to Grade 6 level.

                                          Poems by Yuan Hung Tao, a minor Chinese official during the Ming Dynasty who lost his job, sold up, and spent the rest of his life travelling through China on a boat, writing poetry about his experiences.  His short epigrammatic poems provide insights into the lives of the people he encounters as well as exploring philosophy and religion.

                                              Nine etudes for solo piano.  Suggested grades 5 to 8

                                              Focusing on rhythm as the driving force of the music, the Ritmico Etudes explore a variety of minimalist techniques within a tonal, jazz orientated language, with the addition of some character pieces. In general, the touch should be incisive and percussive, and tempo nuances should be avoided unless marked.
