Product Description

Katharine "Kitty" Parker (1886-1971) was born and raised near Longford in northern Tasmania. after early studies in Melbourne. she took lessons with the great Australian pianist Percy Grainger. Grainger’s estimation of Parker was that she was the best student he ever had and that her composing talents were second to none. In London Parker began composing in earnest and published songs and piano pieces from 1913 until the mid 1930s. Her music generally reflected the Edwardian tendencies of the time towards sentimentality, particularly in the songs but, with an individual persuasive emotional sensibility genuinely admired by Grainger .

This CD, featuring Ian Munro (piano) and Jane Edwards (soprano) performing Kitty’s songs and piano music, was funded by the Tasmanian Bicentenary.
