Product details

Spirit Visions was composed after a professional meeting in 2002 between the composer, Margaret Brandman and Sydney organist and clairvoyant Robert Goode who was performing at Sydney Town Hall at the time and for whom Margaret had done a musical arrangement.

This expansive melody harmonised with resonant chords was originally inspired by the tone colours of the magnificent Sydney Town Hall organ, on which Robert Goode regularly performed, and upon which, Margaret, through this fortuitous meeting, was given an opportunity to improvise, thereby channelling the inspiration for this piece. By arranging the work for two pianos, Margaret was able to create a fuller sound replicating the sounds of the organ.

Beginning with the maestoso theme in a major key underpinned by organ pedal notes, several variations in mood are created by changes in the treatment of the theme. Textural and harmonic changes in addition to changes of key, tempo and rhythmic feel, create a dynamic listening experience.

The momentum builds as the lively Latin-American segments take hold, before the restatement of the original majestic theme in the tonic major key and the final joyous, uplifting ending.
