Geregones

By Linda Dalgliesh

Regular price $14.00 Sale

Trio for two flutes and piccolo, c.2'05

In Australia, we often see small insect-eating birds moving through the bushland as a group; gerygones, fantails, thornbills, weebills, with an occasional robin or small honeyeater. This piece is a representation of their nimble flitting and darting, contact calls, and occasional alarms, as they search for food together.
Composed 2018

    Lazy Dog Blues

    By Linda Dalgliesh

    Regular price $16.00 Sale

    For saxophone quartet - A (solo) A (solo) TB,  c.3'55 

    "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog." I have been imagining this poor maligned dog since my childhood typing lessons. Why has she been described as lazy? Is she old and arthritic? Or is she a young working dog at the end of a long day? Has she been rounding up sheep in the hot sun? In either case, doesn't she now deserve to walk slowly onto a cool verandah and rest in the shade, without the indignity of a rude fox leaping over her? 
    Composed 2015

    Puppet Play in Java

    By Betty Beath

    Regular price $27.00 Sale

    String Orchestra, c.3'00

    Puppet Play in Java was inspired by the music of Sunda, West Java and of the street musicians heard playing in Bandung and Jogjakarta. Street musicians singing as they played and sometimes spontaneously move into dance, all being part of the colourful and relaxed life of Java. The composer sought to capture some of that relaxed and playful spirit in this work.

    Sailing Boats

    By Miriam Hyde

    Regular price $31.00 Sale

    Flute, oboe, clarinet and piano, c.1'40

    Written in 1969 for the students of Trinity Grammar School, Melbourne.
    It is associated, in the composer's mind, with Van Gogh's pencil drawing of Fishing Boats. The flowing semiquaver movement in the piano suggests the running, restless sea, while the wind instruments supply a lilting background, as the many little craft tilt their sails and their masts with the bobbing of the waves. The chief melodic material is heard at first on the flute, but is shared later by the oboe and clarinet.
