Limestone Etchings

Martha Hill Duncan

Categories: Collections/Books

Level: Early Advanced/Advanced (Gr 8 - 9)

LIMESTONE ETCHINGS is a collection of piano works paired with original pencil drawings by artist Spencer Hope. This musical and visual collaboration honors the picturesque and historic city of Kingston, Ontario. Other titles published separately are the piano duets Hollyhocks and The Old Stone Church. 1. THE WAR MEMORIAL is inspired by The War Memorial on the shores of Lake Ontario and has a Celtic flavor reflecting the background of the Kingston families whose fallen sons are honored. Distant drums and cannons remind us of a sorrowful past but the bells toll for a brighter future. 2.KINGSTON MILLS LOCKS is my musical attempt to depict the past and present of the most southerly component of the Rideau Canal System. The grinding of the locks mechanism, present day boating and a haunting underwater scene underscore this beautiful, poignant and historical landmark. Many lives were lost in the building of the locks, but they still operate today marking the resolve of early settlers to navigate a new homeland. 3. ON THE POND Imagine a shivery winter morning surrounded by ice fog with the sun just beginning to peek through. The lone skater christens the pristine ice first with easy glides, then more energetic spins and jumps, an exquisite solitary moment amid the natural winter magic. 4. AT CITY HALL The closing piece follows the bustling and energetically charged outdoor rink from the first skater of the day to the last straggler of the night. A variety of skaters are featured including beginners and experienced, along with rambunctious teenagers and romantic couples. MH Duncan

Zarzamora Suite

Martha Hill Duncan

Categories: Collections/Books

Level: Early Advanced/Advanced (Gr 8 - 9), Advanced/Diploma (Grade 10, ARCT and up)

Zarzamora Suite is loosely based on five Spanish street names, that figured prominently in my life as a child and young adult in Austin and San Antonio, Texas. 1. Zarzamora: (trans: bramble berry, Level 9) This piece was inspired by my father's streetcar memories, my grandmother's zippy driving and my own experience of learning to drive. Thanks to my sweet sister O.A. for her patience as i scarily rolled her '62 Valiant backwards down the hilly streets of San Antonio. 2. Dolorosa (trans: suffering, Level 9) Even in a blessed life, one experiences family discord, teenage angst, heartbreak and loss. Fortunately, many of these same bittersweet memories can become ingredients for personal and passionate artistic expression. 3. Mariposa (trans: butterfly, Level 6) was the Austin street that I lived on while attending university. I like to think that I was tucked away in my cocoon there, struggling, growing and developing into my own version of a butterfly. 4. Brazos (trans: arms, Level 10) was written for my husband Martin, who I met on a train to Mexico City. 5. Guadalupe: (Our Lady of Guadalupe, Level 10) The portion of this street running through the campus of the University of Texas at Austin, is known as the "drag" and is home to a colourful array of students, shops, street vendors, congestion, culture and academia.

Nightscapes

Beverly Porter

Categories: Collections/Books

Level: Elementary/Early Intermediate (Gr 1-4), Intermediate/Late Intermediate (Gr 5-7)

This collection of pieces has been written over a span of several years and endeavors to portray some of the events and sights of the nighttime hours. The levels are about 1 through 5 and there is a variety of styles from romantic to ragtime, from quiet to playful and from dancing to dreaming. As always my intention is to spark the imagination and musicality of piano students and I hope I have succeeded in some small way towards that goal.
