      And So it Goes

      By Jocelyn E Kotchie

      Regular price $10.00 Sale

      Piano solo, c.2'00.  Grade 2

      This piece was written for teens, although it equally will resonate with adults and with many pre-teens. The journey through adolescence can be a dark and lonely experience and there is often a tendency for young people to immerse themselves in melancholia. As always in writing for teens, my aim has been to create a balance between allowing the young person to live fully into their emotional life while also giving them a window of light, hope and joy to aspire to so that both the emotional and spiritual needs of adolescence are being met. As such, the music is deeply evocative but any darkness is tempered with light so that the psyche is protected, nourished and enriched.  Composed 2016

            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.
