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.

    Innocence Lost

    By Learne Faint

    Regular price $20.00 Sale

    Solo piano, c. 7'36.  Grade: Diploma

    A pedagogically challenging yet poetic Etude.  It presents elements of the Modern Romantic idiom – minimalism, dissonance and syncopation, whilst remaining lyrical.  Detailed articulation creates divergent additive rhythms, which are played in opposing hands, without the change of time signatures.  The use of repeated patterning assists in developing the skills to overcome these technical difficulties. This poignant piece unfolds layer by layer, as it builds in both intensity and complexity.  Sensitive use of rubato and pedal is required throughout.
    Composed 2018
