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.
Duration: 3 min.
Difficulty: There are two different piano versions of this work. Russian rag in A minor is a simplified and shortened version of the original work.
Commission note: Commissioned by ABC Classics.. Commissioned for the ABC Classics piano CD 'Rags to Riches'.

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)
