Performers Composer

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.

American Record Guide, November/December 2015
The three-movement, 25-minute sonata is from 1894; it's the only piece that's been recorded before. The outer movements are darktoned and chromatic; the slow movement is very beautiful. Fujimura plays with a refined tone and uncomplicated phrasing. The sound is rich; informative notes are in English only.
