Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The Danish composer Svend Erik Tarp (1908-94) was more inspired by the French music culture than by the German that was otherwise predominant in his time. On this CD one can hear Tonya Lemoh's vital interpretation of piano music ranging from the composer's youth in the 1920s to 1956, when Tarp was at the height of his career.
"Powerful and eloquent" (Gramophone on CHAN 10479)
" Sensitively nuanced interpretations" (Classics Today on CHAN 10479)

American Record Guide
Everything on this recital is lively, refined, pleasing, and well-made, played with polish and verve by pianist Tonya Lemoh, and recorded in velvet-smooth...

MusicWeb International
There is some talk of Stravinsky's influence but I heard nothing taking us anywhere near close to that often desiccated neo-classicism.

I do urge you to try this most intriguing and musically valuable disc.

MusicWeb International
Sound quality is very good, although the piano action is sometimes a little on the noisy side. The CD case is made of card and the booklet is housed in a slot that will, alas, not last forever. The booklet itself, however, is excellent: informative, well-written and well-presented: everything pretty much as it should be. The only slight quibble is that the notes sometimes tend towards overstatement - to describe the final section of the wistful Theme with Variations as having "fierce intensity and immense dissonance" is to give the wrong impression: there is nothing here that Chopin could not have come up with, and perhaps did in a parallel universe. It is also surprising to read that, for all its delights, the Theme with Variations "was perhaps his most important work for the piano" - even discounting the Piano Concerto and comparing only solo works, the Three Improvisations and the Sonata are more profound.
