Australian Women Composers' Piano Anthology Volume III

By Katie Zhukov

Regular price $34.00 Sale


Grades Intermediate (5th) to Advanced (Dip.)

15 piano works by Wirripang-published, Australian Women Composers 2020.  

Again, especially written and selected for this volume as edited by Katie Zhukov and it includes a CD of each work recorded by Katie Zhukov.  

This third volume of new piano repertoire by Australian women composers is a companion to the Australian Women Composers’ Piano Anthology (2015)  and Volume II (2017) 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.

          Century Volume I

          By Larry Sitsky

          Regular price $17.00 Sale

          A set of 47 piano pieces for beginners. 
          Didgeridoo - AMEB P Plate Book 2
          ANZCA Syllabus - various pieces, grades Prelim. to Grade 2


          The order of pieces is there not just for progression of difficulty, but for variety, challenge, inspiration as well. At one stage, the composer did sit down with one or more teachers and arrived at a purely subjective grading for each piece. As the composer claims, it will always be contentious, but at least indicates roughly the intent behind the ordering of the collection. Volume I includes mostly pieces for Prep - Level I.  See Volume II.
          Composed 1990

          Century Volume II

          By Larry Sitsky

          Regular price $21.00 Sale

          A set of 52 piano pieces for intermediate grades, the second in the set of three volumes. 

          Red Indian Hand Game Song - AMEB Grade 4
          ANZCA Syllabus - various pieces Grade 3 - 5

          These volumes address a serious artistic repertoire for beginning players, not just classical repertoire simplified. The only main-stream composer who has taken on such a task was Bartok with his MIKROKOSMOS, which gave the young pianist serious repertoire as well as drawing heavily on the folk-music sources which were close to Bartok's heart and compositional world. The order of pieces included is not just for progression of difficulty, but for variety, challenge, inspiration as well. As the composer claims that this will always be contentious, it at least indicates roughly the intent behind the ordering of the collection.  Volume two includes mostly pieces for Levels 1 to 4. (55 pieces in Volume II mainly - Levels 2/3- 5)
