Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The name Roger Sacheverell Coke (1912 - 1972) is very little known, but he was a truly fine British composer whose music embraces a wide range of opera, symphonies, concertos, chamber music, and solo piano music. Coke dedicated his Second Symphony to his friend Rachmaninov, who often visited Coke in his home in the North of England. There is a feel of Rachmaninov's Romanticism in Coke's music, but it has its own unique language. Simon Callaghan, winner of the Prix Special in the 8ème Concours Jean Francaix in Paris, has made a special study of this scandalously neglected composer. This CD contains Coke's two major piano works - a major discovery for lovers of British music!

An in-depth interview featuring Callaghan's work and discovery of Coke was recently published in International Piano magazine. He has also written a blog on Coke's life and work for Gramophone (online now).
