Piano Imagery - CD

By Miriam Hyde

Regular price $30.00 Sale

Music composed by Miriam Hyde.  Each of the 25 pieces on this double CD has been introduced and discussed by the composer followed by the performance by her.  (Samples of her introductions are not listed here.)  First recorded in 1986 and now released by Wirripang,  available online.

The CDs provide a doubly-rare opportunity to hear a composer speak about and perform her own  compositions.  In her introduction to each piece she gives an insight into its inspiration (often Nature, something artistic, romantic English poems, or, as a thank-you for a kind gesture), its structure, types of pianistic devices and tips for performance.

Disc 2 contains her more advanced works.
