At the melting of the snow

By Peter Mcnamara

Regular price $20.00 Sale

Soprano, alto flute and vibraphone, c.4:30

The text for this work makes use of a lesser-known, but still beautifully depictive poem by A.B. (Banjo) Paterson of the same name, written in 1902, but not published until 1917. The poem depicts the amazing transformation that occurs during the spring of the Snowy Mountains, where the snow melts to reveal the green grasses and many varied wildflowers.  Composed 2018

Couperin

By Ann Carr-boyd

Regular price $50.00 Sale

Spoken voice, harpsichord and ensemble, c.10'15.  Composed 1974.

The spoken words are taken from Francois Couperin’s L’Art de toucher Le Clavecin, a manual on harpsichord playing which Couperin wrote in 1716. In it he covers very completely all matters of style and technique, from which a few sentences have been chosen as a starting point for this composition, which is a homage to French music of all periods.

Dance of the Ballerina Marionette

By Sonia Sozio

Regular price $25.00 Sale

Mixed Ensemble, c.1'30.  Intermediate grade
(Percussion, marimba, harp)

This work aims to capture the light and graceful dancing of a ballerina marionette on point who dreams to be free of her strings. She is so immersed in the music as she elegantly leaps, pirouettes and dances around the stage that she does not realise that the strings are released from her arms and legs in the last three bars of the piece.

Composed 2020

      From Fire by Fire

      By Peter Rankine

      Regular price $60.00 Sale

      Quartet for mixed ensemble - flute, violin, horn, cello, c.18'00

      The work takes its title from a lyric of Little Gidding, in T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets. This poem inspired and nourished the composer during the creation of the work. It did this because it speaks eloquently of the creative process itself: tumult; achievement and loss; and mystery. And it did so because the exploration of Time and Eternity is evocative and compelling and seems to address the heart of the mystery of being. To find a musical representation of this interplay and co-existence between “the timeless and time” was a principal inspiration for this work.
      Composed 1989, 2nd Ed 2017
