Formatted Abstract/Summary
Ragtime became popular in the 1920s and was written primarily for the piano. Its main feature was the syncopated rhythm, strong harmonic progressions, and the use of 4 and 8-bar phrases. It appears that many Australian women composers celebrated the arrival of the new millennium by composing Rags. The Rags in this programme range from improvisatory to whimsical and traditional. These Rags illustrate how composers of today can utilise an old rhythmic formula to produce a wide rage of very attractive pieces. The nature pieces in this CD give glimpses of the Australian landscape from land to sea, anchoring the Rags in the particular musical vocabulary of Australian women composers.
