Australian Piano Anthology for the 21st Century - Vol. One by Katie Zhukov


Piano music by Australian composers played by Katie Zhukov.
It became apparent that there was a need for new piano works which represented contemporary Australian composers.  Wirripang approached its composers who, with their magnificient response, produced so many excellent works. 46 compositions were finally chosen, edited and critiqued by Katie Zhukov, and were embodied in three albums of sheet music each accompanied by a CD of the pieces recorded by Katie. 
It was from these recordings by Katie that this CD evolved. It is a collection of very pleasant, listenable and varied piano music and representative of the very high standard of work being written by Wirripang Australian composers. 

The three books of these works (and more) are available online titled:

Australian Summer by Ann Carr-boyd


Solo pipe organ
Composed in Canberra in January 2016.  Canberra was experiencing a heatwave at this time.  In my work for organ, I wished to use the wonderful bass pedal notes of the organ to create a sustained sound, on which are superimposed some of the bird songs I could hear around me, all of which are pervaded by the breathless heat of the day.
Date of composition 2016.

Balmoral Beach Rag by Ann Carr-boyd

Score and part

Cornet and piano, c.5'0
The Rag is descriptive and performer and listener will not find it difficult to relate the chromatic scales, the grace notes, the running and walking music, to the ever-new shock of entering the cold water; the warmth of the sand underfoot and the droplets of water gleaming on the ocean or on arms and legs of people at the beach.

Beneath the Yellow Moon by Ann Carr-boyd

Score and part

Cello and piano,  c.15'00, suggested grade 8-A.MusA
The three movements form a large ternary structure and the cello imitating the didjeridu at various points in the score evokes a distinctly Australian feel. Some opportunities are provided for improvising high harmonics in the cello part during the third movement which suggests images reminiscent of outback mirages.

Birch Tree, The by Diana Weston, Thoroughbass


The theme of this recording is music inspired by folkmusic. Diana Weston (harpsichord) and the ensemble Thoroughbass have recorded this wonderful collection of tunes by composers such as, Mary Mageau, Béla Bartók, May Howlett, Ann Carr-Boyd and Elena Kats-Chernin.
Folk melody and rhythm can be found permeating works from all centuries and genres up to the present. For the French of the 17th and 18th centuries, it formed the backbone of a national style, albeit one with a sophisticated overlay (the dance suite). For some composers, like Bartók, folkmusic became the stuff of their compositional voice. For others like Ann Carr-Boyd, adaptation of folksong was a way of approaching a wide variety of audiences of different ethnic backgrounds. Her new composition, Suite for Diana, follows this trend, as does Elena Kats-Chernin’s The Birch Tree, both composed for Thoroughbass in 2014 and recorded here for the first time. Thematically overlapping Bartók’s miniature pieces ‘For Children’ (arguably ‘about’ children as much as ‘for’ children) are four songs for children by May Howlett. Both composers recognize the complexity of childhood in music that is expressive and authentic, innocent and above all, fun.
