Piano Miniatures by Australian Composers

Visual artists have always been fascinated by bodies of water – rivers, waterfalls, the ocean. The turbulence and calm, movement and stillness, colours and different effects of light on water have all been the catalyst for many masterpieces. Composers too are guilty of being entranced by water and especially the sea. They have tried to recreate, in sound, some of the magic that they see and hear when looking out over the ocean, arriving on an island or travelling in a boat. This album is designed to be a journey in sound, illustrating how water has become a major aspect of inspiration. We visit islands, travel by boat - or imaginary ships - partake in swimming adventures, meet folk who live by the sea, go sailing on Sydney Harbour, take extended ocean journeys and finally after reaching an island of enchantment are lulled to sleep.
