Sheet Music: Score
Kookaburra's friends / Miloslav Penicka.
by Miloslav Penicka (1990)
Our twins started piano at age six with a nearby composer, Ann Carr-Boyd. Three years later Sarah started her "Wildflower Suite" dedicated to Miloslav Penicka! It opened with "Mountain Devil" and concluded 2 bars later. This gave me the idea for Kookaburra's Friends.
