Now that's Aussie!

Think of an Australian pianist and Percy Grainger might come to mind, but that was so long ago. Now days there are plenty of pianists from that country; many of them with huge repertoires' touring the world, so how did Australia make the transition?

On the Piano this Sunday I highlight two woman pianist/ composers that helped set the standard for the many musicians to come. Both born in 1913, these talents studied at home and Britain and returned with enough experience, insight and talent to help train the next generations of Australian musicians.

Hear the music of Dulcie Holland and Miriam Hyde as well as a knockout fantasy on Waltzing Matilda on the Piano this Sunday afternoon at 5 on KPAC and KTXI.
