Concerto for Piano and Orchestra for Two Pianos

By Meta Overman

Regular price $130.00 Sale

Three movements for two pianos arranged from the orchestral version, c.25'00

In 1942 Overman wrote the piano concerto which was performed at the time by the Rotterdam Philharmonic orchestra and Marinus Flipse as piano soloist. Unfortunately, due to the war and the occupation of Rotterdam by the Nazis the orchestral parts, including the piano part, were lost and all that has been available since was a handwritten full score that had been retained in the Overman archives in the Music Library at UWA.
The work is in three movements and is written at times like a duet in that the piano is one instrument and the orchestra, as a whole, is the other and the two alternate with the main melodic and harmonic motives.  

The manuscripts have been researched and edited by Jeanell Carrigan, 2020. The work has been recorded by Jeanell Carrigan and Tonya Lemoh and a CD is included with the two scores.

Grotesque - Operina

By Meta Overman

Regular price $70.00 Sale

A one act operina (very small opera) for soprano, clarinet (or flute), four hands piano and dancer. 

The score also includes a CD of the chamber works and a DVD of the first performance held at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music on 2nd April 2019 (also linked here).

Grotesque
is a tragic comedy with quite an absurd plot involving an old man – the character played by the clarinettist, a young girl, sung by the soprano and a ghost whose antics are created by the sounds of the piano. Its structure is theme and variations as in the original version for piano four hands and the plot is described by a narrator. It is a little questionable whether in a performance that is staged the narrator is really necessary. In fact there is no mention of a narrator on the original score though when recording the work a narrator could be deemed necessary to outline the antics of the characters who cannot be seen. In a staged version the characters create the images and the “narration” on the score can be viewed as merely stage directions. The dancer would therefore act out the antics of the ghost and the instrumentalists would become the characters described by the stage directions.   Composed 1951 rev. 1961
Edited by Jeanell Carrigan

Impromobile

By Michael Hannan

Regular price $20.00 Sale

Piano for four hands, c.4'20

The composer coined the term "impromobile" to combine the idea of the musical mobile (a series of musical fragments that can be played in any order at the discretion of the performer) with the idea of improvisation. In this work the performers are each presented with ten short musical fragments and instructed to play at least eight of them in any order and to extend them all by improvisation. The performers are advised to analyse the work (both primo and secondo parts) in order to assist with the process of improvisation and facilitate ensemble coherence.
Composed 2016
