NEW MUSIC EDITIONS<br />

JANUARY <strong>2024</strong><br />

Three new works for accomplished pianists who enjoy<br />

performing new music<br />

Sortie for piano is our first publication by Australian<br />

composer Cyrus Meurant. Meurant is an enterprising<br />

young composer whose works have been performed<br />

throughout Australia and further afield. His music has<br />

been described as evocative, hypnotic, deeply rich<br />

and hauntingly beautiful. Sortie (PE204) resonates with<br />

anticipation and hope, reflecting the human spirit’s<br />

resilience. Meurant’s masterful restraint and skilful<br />

layering of simple ostinati creates an ever-evolving and<br />

building sonic landscape.<br />

We have also released Matthew Hindson’s Mechanically<br />

Speaking (PE046) as a standalone edition. First published<br />

in Firestarters 2 (PE069) in 2006, Mechanically Speaking<br />

is a rare piano work from the prominent Australian<br />

composer’s catalogue. It was composed with an image<br />

of interlocking pieces of machinery in mind – the<br />

composer imagined an industrial workplace with gears<br />

cranking and cogs turning.<br />

We are also pleased to release the long awaited second<br />

volume of Vincent Ho’s Supervillain Études (PE215).<br />

This volume includes études 4–6 including C4twoman,<br />

Poi5on Ivy, and J6ker. These Supervillain Études take<br />

gestural cues from choreography while maintaining<br />

the profiles and personalities of the aforementioned<br />

supervillains, forming a compellingly moody, exciting,<br />

and villainous set of works.<br />

All three works are perfect for more accomplished<br />

pianists who enjoy performing new works from living<br />

composers.<br />

<strong>New</strong> arrangement of Vaughan Williams’ incidental<br />

music for Richard II available<br />

This new adaption and arrangement of Richard II –<br />

Incidental music for a radio production of William<br />

Shakespeare’s play brings Vaughan Williams’s music<br />

alive to a new audience. Richard II: A Concert Fantasy<br />

(PEV04S) masterfully stitches together the majority of<br />

the original 34 incidental music cues into a 17-minute<br />

suite for concert performance.<br />

Vincent Ho’s Supervillain Études fixate on six supervillains from comic book culture. Ho<br />

found that each of these villains are extreme expressions of psychological disorders and<br />

decided to dive into their psychological profiles collaborating with choreographers to see<br />

their takes on animating each of the profiles. The Supervillain Études take gestural cues from<br />

choreography while maintaining the profiles and personalities of the aforementioned supervillains,<br />

forming a compellingly moody, exciting, and villainous set of works. This volume<br />

contains three études: C4twoman, Poi5on Ivy, and J6ker.<br />

Mechanically Speaking was composed with an image of interlocking pieces of machinery in<br />

mind – the composer imagined an industrial workplace with gears cranking and cogs turning.<br />

The opening of the work, particularly, sets this mood although there are many twists<br />

and turns throughout the piece. There is one particular motive that returns throughout the<br />

composition in many different guises. A perfect piece for the advanced student performer<br />

wishing to expand their repertoire of Australian classics.<br />

Written during a time of global uncertainty, Sortie resonates with anticipation and hope,<br />

reflecting the human spirit’s resilience. Meurant’s masterful restraint and skilful layering of<br />

simple ostinati creates an ever-evolving and building sonic landscape. The music steadily<br />

expands with overlapping rhythmic movement and subtle dynamic shifts, keeping the listener’s<br />

ear engaged throughout. Suitable for pianists of all levels looking for a challenging<br />

and rewarding work.<br />

THE<br />

VAUGHAN<br />

WILLIAMS<br />

COLLECTION<br />

The Vaughan Williams Collection brings together a series of newly-edited<br />

editions of his incidental music published by <strong>Promethean</strong> <strong>Editions</strong>.<br />

Recognised as one of the major musical figures of his time, Ralph Vaughan<br />

This new adaption and arrangement of Richard II – Incidental music for a radio Williams began his career production<br />

as a folk song collector, music editor of The English<br />

Hymnal and founding conductor of the Leith Hill Festival, and went on to<br />

generate a vast musical output that includes song settings, symphonies,<br />

chamber music, opera and choral music.<br />

of William Shakespeare’s play brings Vaughan Williams’s music alive to a new ... audience.<br />

Although the composer prepared an extensive score – having written approximately 25<br />

minutes of original music scored for an orchestra with a full complement of brass and percussion<br />

– the BBC radio production never materialised. Richard II: A Concert Fantasy masterfully<br />

stitches together the majority of the original 34 incidental music cues into a 17-minute<br />

suite for concert performance.<br />
