Notes and Editorial Reviews

Born in Adelaide, South Australia, Ann Ghandar initially was self-taught and started to play tunes on the piano at a very early age. She studied piano with Larry Sitsky and composition with Richard Meale and then Jonathan Harvey in the U.K. Throughout the span of Ann Ghandar's career as a composer her works varied in different stages and covered a wide range of sound colors and structures. Her earlier works are characterized by tonal harmony and strong rhythms. In the 60s and 70s, her music reflected the new sounds and freedom of the 20th century. In the 80s and 90s, she traveled in Egypt and explored Middle Eastern music. This gave her music greater dimension and purity. She achieved greater clarity and simplicity and used highly Read more imaginative colors. Examples of her work from this later period are presented on this CD. Read less
