Notes & Reviews:
The music London-born William Yeates Hurlstone was able to compose during his short life (1876-1906) shows remarkable accomplishment. This CD presents the first-ever recording of his complete piano music. Developing from confident childhood essays taking on board the influences of Chopin, Schumann and Brahms, his music matured into an assured and natural style balancing lyricism and drama. Hurlstone scholar Dr Kenji Fujimura, one of Australia's most important musicians, is currently situated at the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music, Monash University.
