On Heather Hill Product Description
The "centerpiece" of this CD is the complete works for piano four hands by York Bowen. On Heather Hill In the past few years, his music has experienced something of a renaissance. None of Bowen's music for piano four hands has ever appeared on LP or CD. Like his solo piano and chamber music, Bowen's piano duets reveal a mastery of form combined with a highly original harmonic and melodic sense.
The compositions by Mervyn Roberts are all recorded for the first time. Indeed, we worked from manuscripts and out-of-print scores. Roberts' highly personal, contemplative music is in fine contrast to the exuberant and unabashed romanticism of the Bowen scores.
Alan Richardson's compositions exude charm and are instantly appealing. They are expertly realized for the medium, as only an accomplished pianist and ensemble player could fashion.
Perhaps the real "discovery" here is Sir Hamilton Harty's unknown Fantasy. Meticulously reconstructed from the manuscript by Donald Garvelmann, it has lain dormant since its only performance in 1902.
