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.

    Craters of Rhea - Double Bass

    By Keyna Wilkins

    Regular price $18.00 Sale

    Double bass and loop pedal, c.8'00. Level of difficulty:  A.Mus.  

    The composer imagines the craggy and sharp but beautiful shapes of the ice craters of Rhea (second largest of Saturn's moons) and interprets them musically in the opening motifs. The loop pedal for electric double bass is explored with use of a repeated and recorded 5 bar theme over which there is some notated lines and some structured improvisation, giving the work an optimistic resolution.

        Dinner Party

        By Keyna Wilkins

        Regular price $50.00 Sale

        Saxophone Orchestra, c.4'30.  Level of difficulty - 7th Grade and above.

        In this piece the composer has tried to explore the harmonic possibilities of such homogenous sounding ensemble by using the analogy of a dinner party in which the guests begin to have a polite conversation, which descends into argument in which they are all shouting at once.  By the time they leave, however, they have found resolution. Musically the motifs are developed in an intuitive free-flowing manner, centering around G Minor.

            Full Moon - Clarinet

            By Keyna Wilkins

            Regular price $15.00 Sale

            Solo Clarinet in Bb, c.4'00. Difficulty level: 8th grade - A.Mus.
            Full Moon creates an atmosphere of reflection and mystery like the moon itself. The piece meanders in an impressionistic and improvisatory manner, as if dreaming. Centering around G phrygian mode with much chromatic colour, it takes inspiration from images from NASA's Grail Mission in 2012 to map the moon's surface. Composed 2016
