Morning By An Ocean
Morning By An Ocean (Jade JADCD1100)

Label: Jade Cat. No.: JADCD1100 Medium: CD No. Discs: 1

Five works for solo piano open this CD, beginning with the title track by Allworth and played by David Miller. Composed in 1987 and based on a 12-tone row, it employs chordal, contrapuntal and rhythmic devices to portray the ever-changing moods of the ocean. Shanahan's "153 Infinities" (1996), is played by Zubin Kanga. In his own words Shanahan "eschews mundane pulse and its obsession with piano-resonance and colours" to create "an ecstatic detachment from Time's unyielding flow". Strahan's "Patriarchy" (1992) is extracted from his longer "Atlantis variations" and arises from the following pathology: "Law-maker, law-breaker, moral angst, phallic imperative, existential rage, scientific curiosity, religious fervour". Sally Mays is then heard playing Allworth's "Reflections At Nightfall" (2002) and Gross's "Sallymede" (2002), is dedicated to the performer, and depicts aspects of the English countryside near where she now lives. Further solo piano works by Carr-Boyd,"Saturn" (1978), and Betty Beath, "Contrasts (1983), are also heard, played respectively by the composers.

Gross also contributes a suite of four mandolin duets titled "Paul and Adrian" (1989), after two brothers in the Hooper family who form the basis of a Plectrum ensemble "The Sydney Mandolins". The work makes full use of many different techniques employed by mandolinists.

The CD closes with a segment of works for organ. Allworth's Suite in Honour of the 70th birthday of Polish composer Henryk Gorecki is followed by two works written by US composer Carson P. Cooman and performed by him on the organ of the memorial Church, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts. USA. These are "Elegy" (2001) and "First-Light Prayer" (2003) composed as an 80th birthday gift for US composer David Pinkham
