Piano Reflections

John Burge

Categories: Collections/Books

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

Piano Reflections is a collection of eight Intermediate and Advanced piano solos. In many ways this collection is a follow-up to Parking an Octatonic Truck in that both books include compositions that were written in the late 1990's for use as quick-study pieces. Initially this new set was to consist of only six pieces but while assembling and editing the music, Burge was asked to write a composition for one of his colleagues at Queen's University in honour of the university's first Nobel Prize recipient in 2015. Although completely unanticipated at the time, the resultant tribute to Dr. Arthur McDonald titled, "Oscillations," became this collection's most significant work. There is a fine video of Burge performing this diploma-level composition on Youtube. Additionally, in 2015 Adele Barclay, a writer and former first-year harmony student of Burge's, happened to mention his solo piano arrangement of "O Canada" in a Literary Review of Canada book critique. As this arrangement often changed character due to its improvisational underpinnings, finally putting the notes down on paper made his setting of "O Canada" another ideal addition. 42 Pages.

Truly Astounding Animals

Peter Rudzik

Categories: Collections/Books

Level: Intermediate/Late Intermediate (Gr 5-7), Early Advanced/Advanced (Gr 8 - 9)

A set of twelve playful and highly imaginative miniatures, each portraying an astounding animal. There is an Annoying Fly with its goofy theme and buzzing effect, Boastful Kangaroo with its left hand leaps and chords that move chromatically. Busy Woodpecker has a truly pecking theme accompanied by fast alberti bass while Tarantula's Tarantella offers yet another challenge in fast playing with a variety of different articulations. Whale Song, Thoughtful Rhino and Hedgehog at Night are more mysterious in nature while Orange Striped Zebra, Silly Little Squirrel and Dancing Penguins are sweet little pieces for children. Happy Grasshopper has a lively and bouncy character that reflect its free and independent nature while March of the Centipedes has quite a mischievous theme. Great for recitals and festivals. Strongly recommended by the International Piano magazine.

Twenty-four Preludes

John Burge

Categories: Collections/Books

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

This work also includes a number of diploma level compositions highly suitable for competition or examination use given their compact size and relatively short duration. The set reveals Burge's close affinity to the music of Chopin. Equally though, the Preludes of Debussy, with their expressive textural sonorities and colour, can also be considered touchstones, especially in the way that Burge provides subtitles for fourteen of his Preludes. Composed over the years 2011-2015, Burge personally premiered a few at a time so that the music had a long period of gestation, finally premiering the entire set in 2015 (a complete performance takes about one hour). The most unusual aspect of these Preludes is that eight of them use extended instrumental techniques such as strumming strings inside the piano. These techniques are very simple to execute and do not require any advance preparation of the piano but in most cases can only be realized successfully on a grand piano with the music stand removed. As a guiding principle, Burge tried to embrace each Prelude's tonic key in an audibly recognizable fashion so that at times the music is emphatically tonal, even in the Preludes that involve non-traditional performance practices. While some of the Preludes have a difficulty level appropriate to Grades 8 and 9 repertoire ("Prelude No. 5" was published previously in Northern Lights Volume 8B), the majority of the Preludes are at a Grade 10 or Diploma level of difficulty and as such, have much potential for piano competition and examination use. The music is beautifully printed with a coil binding hidden by a fold-over cover for lasting protection and durability. 80 pages.
