Notes & Reviews:

A brand-new release, never before available in any format! William Sterndale Bennett (1816-1875) was born in Sheffield. Mendelssohn heard him play his First Piano Concerto in 1833 and invited him to Germany as a friend. Sterndale Bennett founded the Bach Society (1849), was appointed conductor of the Philharmonic Society concerts (1855), and was elected Professor of Music at Cambridge (1856). Long neglected in modern times, Sterndale Bennett's music is noted for its charm rather than profundity; as Robert Schumann once observed, it has the same beauty of form as Mendelssohn's, "but with a difference."
