Product details

Many of the descriptions in literature and music about Australia focus on a flat or drought-ridden landscape but for me, Australia's flora and fauna and natural weather patterns created an environment that was vibrant and exciting. It is these images and experiences that are expressed in the various musical chapters of a larger collection of piano solos titled Scenes from an Australian Childhood.

Spiders are not exactly the most beloved of Australia's fauna but I do recall the beauty of dew in the morning light hanging from numerous large webs on the side of Australia's more remote inland roads. The Garden Orb spider built such strong, big webs in the garden at home, so strong, that as a child, you were almost bounced back from them if you ever ran into one. Garden Orb Web takes its structure from the web building process of this spider, a process which is completed by the weaving of the spiral, first in then out, and the final glistening of the dew.
