The second CD, first released in 1992, is a departure from the mainstream virtuoso repertoire, and reflects my interest in contemporary music. It features Australian composer Carl Vine's Piano Sonata (1990) and gives a perspective on Vine's individual style by including works seminal to his compositional processes, such as Elliott Carter's Piano Sonata (1946), Stravinsky's Three Pieces from Petrouchka (1921) and the Australian composer Graham Hair's Under Aldebaran (1986)."
