John Carmichael – Russian Song and Dance from “Postcards”


Anna Sutyagina plays Australian composer John Carmichael.
Postcards is a set of short piano pieces of moderate difficulty designed to extend the expressive range of the performer via attention to tone colour, phrasing, and a dash of musical
imagination, essential in conjuring up the varied scenes within the set.

Composed in 2009, it was a 10 minutes set that consists of the following songs: A Russian song & dance — Autumn spell — Solitaire — A courtly dance — Caribbean.

Commission note: Commissioned by Rosalind Leney, London piano teacher, for study and performance by her students
