Notes & Reviews:

This is the second volume in Mark Bebbington's traversal of the solo piano music of Sir Arthur Bliss; the first volume garnered impressive reviews for both composer and performer. Bliss was Master of the Queen's Music from 1953 until his death in 1975, and made a significant contribution to British music. This new album encompasses the composer's most important piano works, including his supreme masterpiece "Triptych" as well as the world premiere of the fascinating early Suite for Piano (1912).

BBC Music Magazine
Impressive and near flawless.

Gramophone
A vivid portrait of one of the most important English composers of his period.
