Matilda Variations is a one-of-a-kind solo piano work in tribute to Australia, based on its beloved song 'Waltzing Matilda.' Commissioned by American pianist Laura Leon, Steven Rosenhaus' work cleverly weaves it way through 'Waltzing Matilda' with an inventive series of classically conceived variations. Delightfully subtle references to many great works of the piano repertoire are woven into the variations from--from a roster of composers that include Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and Chopin. Along the way, Matilda Variations takes an unexpected turn--with a Tango!
In December 2000, Laura Leon commissioned American composer Steven Rosenhaus to compose a solo work based on Waltzing Matilda in honor of Australia, for a concert she was invited to give at the New York Australian Consulate-General in March 2001.
Since its premiere and original CD release at that concert, Laura has performed Matilda Variations for audiences, near and far. The work was rerecorded in 2010. This is its 2011 release. This recording joins the original one in the Australia National Film and Sound Archive in Canberra, which preserves and provides access to Australia's historic and contemporary moving image and recorded sound culture.
Pianist Laura Leon has broadened the spectrum of American music and where it can be experienced. She has brought composers and their works to audiences, beyond traditional concert venues--to new settings and special events. She has been heralded for the special touch she brings to both her solo and collaborative performances at the piano, which include unique collaborations and live performances of multimedia works, including Found in Nature and the 2006 Emmy-award winning documentary, The Hidden LIfe.
Laura has receive acclaim for her performances and recordings of a wide roster of American composers, including Peter Schickele, William Bolcom, Hugo Weisgall, Steven Rosenhaus, Eric Ewazen, and Morton Gould., all of which are on the Musical Tapestries Inc. label.
