Product details

Many of the descriptions in literature and music about Australia focus on a flat or drought-ridden landscape but for me, Australia's flora and fauna and natural weather patterns created an environment that was vibrant and exciting. It is these images and experiences that are expressed in the various musical chapters of a larger collection of piano solos titled Scenes from an Australian Childhood.
Trees & Lightning begins with an approaching storm over a national park, the heavy and intense stillness of the air contained by the suppressed dynamics of the opening bars against which there are bursts of lightning and brooding thunder. This eases forward into the central waltz where the artistic perspective alters to below the treeline. Here one is looking up at the trees (gums, eucalyptus etc.) whose white limbs are
transformed in the lightning to reveal them moving in a fantastic dance.
