Product details

Don Kay is an Australian composer residing in Tasmania, who has written an impressive oeuvre of piano music. This collection contains works written over ten years from 1998. Each work was written for a particular pianist whose personalities influenced the style of writing. Each of these dedicatees have, or have had, ongoing connections to Tasmania (Ian Munro, David Bollard, Michael Kieran Harvey, Vanessa Sharman). The music is always listenable and by turns challenging and charming.

Tall Poppies is proud to release this first recording dedicated to Don Kay's work. He studied composition with Malcolm Williamson in the early 60s, and has written works in most genres.

Vanessa Sharman was born in Tasmania and retains close connections with her home state whilst living and teaching in Sydney. In Australia she has studied with Eric Mitchell, Beryl Sedivka and Geoffrey Lancaster, and in Paris with C├ęcile Ousset and Yvonne Loriot. She has a particular interest in contemporary music and has worked closely with Don Kay. This is her debut CD.

Duration: 70 min.

LIner notes include programme notes, and biographical notes about composer and performer.
