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

Baroque Bear at the Arabian Wedding Party, The

By Gina Ismene Chitty

Regular price $50.00 Sale

For marimba, classical guitar, sleigh bells and cow bells, c.7'00

The Baroque Bear is a character from the Grunewald forest in Berlin of the early 1700s. He time travels to be a guest at a twenty first century Arabian wedding party.

The Classical guitar, representative of the Baroque Bear, reflects on his musings and gradual  acceptance of the florid Arabian traditions, similar and yet dissimilar to his own musical and Bärenfamilie traditions.

 At the onset he is confused by the rich and diverse Arabian music and culture, the dance rhythms, the wild abandon and the prevailing joie de vivre that seems a little removed from his own culture and music.  But he quickly strikes a rapport with the beautiful bride and the groom, plodding on and cheerfully asserting his own ornamentation of decorative flourishes, trills and little arpeggiated riffs, to match the exotic dance melodies and rhythms of the lovely couple.

Composed 2020.

BirdTalk

By Peter Dart

Regular price $50.00 Sale

For 2 marimbas and pre-recorded sound.

BirdTalk was written for the players to enjoy. The composer has no idea what the title
means. For him it was suggestive of a playful dialogue between the two marimbas and the pre-recorded sounds. The sounds are chirpy and chattering rather than obviously birdlike.  The performers may interpret and play with the title as they please.
Composed 2018

Hard copy purchase includes reduced conductor's score and two marimba scores and audio CD.

      Chillin' in Lockdown

      By Gina Ismene Chitty

      Regular price $15.00 Sale

      For marimba, drum set and piano, c.2'00

      This piece captures the easy and relaxed mindset of a young adolescent who is happy to experience the unexpected bonus of a longer school holiday during the Covid lockdown.

      The spaces within the harmonies of the marimba and piano, and the higher sonorities reflect a ‘lightness of being’, the lightness of being released from the bondage of assignments, assessments and other school tasks.

       A heady feeling, to be young, unencumbered, and thrust into vacation from the rigidities of school examinations.

          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.

          Elegy 'In Memoriam Peter Sculthorpe'

          By Harry Sdraulig

          Regular price $35.00 Sale

          Strings and percussion
          Scored for full strings, timpani and percussion (including anvil and vibraphone).
          Elegy ‘In Memoriam Peter Sculthorpe’ was written in commemoration of one of Australia’s most inventive and influential composers, whose passing on August 8, 2014 was deeply felt by the countless musicians and audiences to have been touched by the integrity, humanity and beauty of his music. 
          Though this piece contains a few deliberate references to Peter Sculthorpe’s music, especially through the use of percussion (reminiscent of Earth Cry) and the desolate spirituality of the cello solo at the work’s heart, the composer has avoided any attempt at imitation or pastiche, instead composing a work true to his own individual language. It is nevertheless written with heartfelt respect for a man whose influence on the landscape of Australian art music is unparalleled.
          Composed 2015
