Rediscovering Australian women composers of piano music by Jeanell Carrigan
Jeanell Carrigan's latest project has uncovered a treasury of works for piano, written by Australian women active as composers, pianists and music educators in the late 19th century and throughout the 20th century. Three volumes of piano music, including CD recordings of the works, are now available from the AMC Shop. A selection of this beautiful repertoire is also available as a separate CD Nostalgia - Piano Music by Australian Women.
Composing against the tide by Jeanell Carrigan
A surprisingly large number of women born in Australia between 1860 and 1915 became composers of piano music. For most of them this was not a task easily accomplished - they did not always receive encouragement, let alone earn a living from their creative work. Many of these composers have been largely forgotten, most of their works perhaps irretrievably lost. Jeanell Carrigan has been researching and discovering this repertoire, playing and recording the music of these women - and now writing their story in a new book entitled Composing Against the Tide.
