Recital Suite Series
Impressionistic and neoclassical in style, the music of An Australian Journal is patterned for ease in learning and set in a variety of keys and tempi. Using a wide range of the keyboard, the suite teaches control over rolled chords, sustained melody and melodic development. With flowing melodies and surprising harmonies, each movement paints colorful images that exemplify the Australian spirit. Intermediate.
