Notes & Reviews:
Harold Truscott (1914 - 92) enjoyed a reputation as one of Britain's most perceptive writers on music, a doughty champion of many neglected composers who have now become familiar figures. Truscott himself was a composer of some stature, writing in an individual style rooted in Beethoven and Schubert but also absorbing influences of Nielsen, Medtner and Hindemith. This is the first CD in a series presenting his substantial corpus of piano music. Ian Hobson, pianist and conductor, began his international career in 1981 when he won First Prize at the Leeds Int'l Piano Competition.
