Iris de Cairos-Rego (1894-1987)

There are many composers who lived in the early part of the twentieth century in Australia whose music has been scattered and largely forgotten. Even if their music was published it is long out of print and might be found in several libraries in the original publication or in archives but is often very difficult to trace and is almost never available from one source.

In The Composers' Series each volume will contain biographical notes about the composer, editorial and performance notes about each piano composition, the scores and recordings. While its aims are to present a comprehensive portrait of the composer and their piano music this will sometimes be impossible as some scores have certainly been lost forever and only a mention can be made of those works.

More comprehensive biographical notes are within the volume.

22 piano solos from 1924 to 1957 are represented in this collection and includes  a recording by Jeanell Carrigan of all works.

Researched and edited by Jeanell Carrigan
