9 works for SA choir with distinctly Australian content, composed by various Australian composers.

A ‘call for scores’ requested that the word content must be of ‘distinctly Australian flavour’. More than 40 works were submitted, obviously more than one volume!  Hence, three volumes have emerged with one each for SATB choirs (mostly with piano accompaniment); a SA choir; and choir with instruments other than piano (with separate instrument parts).  As a result, their words have captured our Australian fabric; gum trees, many types of birds - kookaburras, magpies, currawong, even the Indian miner bird, and more - brumbies, bushfires, climate, seasons, and of course, arrangements of traditional folk songs.

Overall, we have tried to make this project as accessible as possible to ensure that this Australian music is heard and appreciated by many and enjoyed by the singers. 

Multiple choir copies of any of the works can be purchased individually under license at very reasonable rates. Please contact keats@wirripang.com.au

          Australian Women Composers' Piano Anthology Volume II

          By Katie Zhukov

          Regular price $50.00 Sale

          Grades Intermediate (5th) to Advanced (Dip.)

          16 piano works by Wirripang-published, Australian Women Composers 2018.  

          Especially written and selected for this album as edited by Katie Zhukov and it includes a CD of each work recorded by Katie Zhukov.  

          This second volume of new piano repertoire by Australian women composers is a companion to the Australian Women Composers’ Piano Anthology (2015) published earlier by Wirripang.

          Commissioning new work from established and emerging composers provides an opportunity for women’s voices to be heard in the Australian classical music arena that tends to be dominated by live and recorded performances of music by male composers. Introducing new generations of piano students to music by women composers helps drive the grassroots campaign for gender equality in Australian classical music.
          The pieces vary in style from Romantic to contemporary, neo-classical, and jazz-influenced idioms.
          Each work is accompanied by the composer’s biography, composer comments and pedagogical advice. The grading will assist teachers is choosing repertoire of appropriate difficulty for study and as extra lists for examinations.

              Chacarera Tropical

              By Jane Andino

              Regular price $20.00 Sale

              Piano Solo, c.4'20.  Level of difficulty - advanced

              The chacarera is a dance form and rhythm originating in the rural areas of north-western Argentina. From there it spread to urban areas and became recognised as a national folk dance of Argentina. The tropical element in this composition is the middle quasi-improvised section, which uses a typical Cuban son four-bar chord progression. The son is a dance and song form originating in the rural areas of eastern Cuba. Like most Cuban music, it is an amalgam of the African and Spanish cultural origins of the country.  Composed 2016
