By Una Bournne

Regular price $45.00 Sale

Una Bourne

23 piano solos from 1897 (aged 5 years) to 1927 are represented in this collection and includes  biographical notes about the composer, editorial and performance notes about each piano composition, the scores and a recording by Jeanell Carrigan of all works in the hard copy.

Una Bourne’s compositions are almost entirely for piano. Most of the works were published but there are several unpublished works held in archives by the State Library of Victoria. These include compositions transcribed by her elder sister Margaret, suggested by Una Bourne when she was five years old and are six small airs, all in C major, which appear, despite the different time signatures, like variations on each other. The six Airs appear in this publication exactly as transcribed by Margaret Bourne with no editing or dynamics added by this editor. Other works in the archives are also three songs: The War March (Fight for our Motherland); Anxiety to which she wrote both words and music and A Cloudless Night (song) words and music by Una Bourne (1922).

Unpublished piano solos also found in the archives include three more difficult works:
Valse Lente (unpublished)
Menuet (unpublished)
Papillons (unpublished)

Researched and edited by Jeanell Carrigan
