    Vanessa Sharman returns to the piano music of Tasmanian composer Don Kay, in this second recording featuring the Sonatas 7 and 9. Recorded in the beautiful acoustic of Melbourne’s Salon at the Recital Centre, Vanessa’s performances perfectly capture the delicacy and emotion of these works. Don Kay’s music is transformed by his environment and in later years by the death of his wife Frances.

    When the first volume “Bird Chants” (TP210) was released it was the first disc devoted to Don’s music. With this second volume we now have the second recording devoted to Don’s compositions. Vanessa Sharman is single-handedly bringing Don’s music to the world. He is a lucky composer to have his music performed with such craft and attention.
