Sheet Music: Score
The Ormond Collection : for solo piano / Linda Kouvaras.
by Linda Kouvaras (1999)
I have been resident at Ormond College since 1993. The pieces in the collection were catalysed by the experience of living in a college community. The stunning, nineteenth-century Gothic architecture inspired the writing of "Chapel" and "Tower". Interaction with students inspired "The Yearning", while "City Views from the Sixth Floor, McCaughey Court" is a reflection on overlooking a cosmopolitan city. The postludes which follow each piece are a stark and abstracted extension of the extra-musical ideas associated with each piece.
