Piano Duet

Stairway to the Moon - piano duet

By Ann Carr-boyd

Regular price $11.00 Sale

Piano duet, c.4'00.  

As the Full Moon rises over Roebuck Bay in Broome at certain times the exposed tidal flats are transformed into a staircase of light rising slowly to meet the orb hanging huge and shimmering gold. This phenomenon is a rare spectacle that brings many tourists to various vantage points including Town Beach and the Mangrove Hotel to wait for the Moon to rise. As the excitement and anticipation mounts spectators at the Hotel are entertained by a honky tonk piano belting out a jazz theme which contains an undercurrent of bass repetitive notes. However this percussive refrain also evokes the didgeridoo and the clap stick- a homage to the those who first witnessed this strange and captivating event in the Dreamtime. The old meets the new. This is a special and ancient place on the west Pilbara and Kimberley coast of Western Australia. The mangroves and mudflats of Roebuck is in Yawuru country. The Staircase forms part of the Lurujarri Trail. 
As the Moon rises and exposes the stairs the piano chords become silvery and step up in rises with tonalities we have grown to look forward to from this composer. The Moon interlude then becomes a captivating mixture of the modern spectators excitement and wonder as the staircase builds and of the old Moon man of the Dreamtime as danced by the Bardi people who understand the strong tides and their precious saltwater environment.

Composed 2018

    Those Fiddlers Three

    By Jocelyn E Kotchie

    Regular price $18.00 Sale

    Piano duet for advanced students.

    Often there is an historical context for nursery rhymes – whether securely or loosely based on fact or as the result of local or urban mythology, passed down through the generations. This duet has been adapted from the solo piece of the same name, taken from my suite, ‘A Right Royal Flush’: a satirical reinvention of five favourite nursery rhymes with a medieval flavour and a jazz twist.
