Work Overview

Russian Rag

This piece was originally written in 1996 for a pianist Donna Coleman, as a commission from ABC Classics, for her CD "Rags to Riches". It was my first ever Ragtime and it has a slightly nostalgic feel, with a slight reference to Russian Cafe Music. Written in a rondo form.

Selected works for clarinet, 2009

Posted by Australian Music Centre on 15 March, 2016

A popular piece of moderate difficulty for clarinet and piano. Requires reasonable control of all registers on the clarinet, rhythmically manageable with a straightforward piano part. Middle section more demanding. (Ros Dunlop, 2009)
