Natalie's Suite

By Mark John Mcencroe

Regular price $125.00 Sale

Three movement symphonic suite for piano and orchestra.   c.40'00
Three Faces of Addiction.   Composed 2014.

The work focuses on the dilemma of addiction.  The overriding tragedy of this malady is denial, and the absolute obsession that one day, the sufferer will gain control over their problem. The insanity of doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result, is at the core of addiction. To illustrate this the composer has deliberately stayed in the home key throughout the entire work, to emphasise this aspect of addiction and create a “tragic soundscape”.

Conductor's score includes a CD of the work performed by The Janacek Philharmonic Orchestra.

Reflections

By Mark John Mcencroe

Regular price $25.00 Sale

This recording of piano music by Mark John McEncroe is brilliantly performed by the John Martin.   Monet's garden paintings are reflected by 13 musical images of Japanese gardens resplendent with fishponds and bonsai.  The music is strongly influenced by J S Bach and baroque styling but is given a contemporary feel by considerable use of jazz harmonies of which John has the exceptional touch to so implement.

By Mark John Mcencroe

Regular price $45.00 Sale
