Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Peter Seabourne's piano series Steps is seen by many as one of the most significant large scale piano series of the 21st century. This disc includes the world premiere recording of volume three of the cycle, which sees the famous monument through the eyes of painter Ann Seabourne, his aunt, with whom he collaborated extensively during the composition. It is coupled with a selection of Spanish Dances by the Andalusian Enrique Granados, and the wildly virtuosic Fantasia Baetica by Manuel de Falla, who lived just a few meters from the Alhambra. This collaborative venture, called "Diverse Encounters," will be presented in a joint exhibition/recital next year.
