Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The second CD of music by the legendary Billy Mayerl, one of the most successful and brilliantly gifted composer-pianists of his generation! He played the Grieg Piano Concerto at London's Queen's Hall when only seven years old, and gave the British premiere of his friend George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue in the composer's presence. The success of the first volume (SMM 124) has shown that there is a new and growing market for Mayerl's syncopated music, and Philip Martin is equally charismatic and compelling in this second volume.

BBC Music Magazine
This is the first volume in a series in which the sequels cannot arrive too soon. The principal joy resides in Billy Mayerl's music - British piano pieces that are syncopated and melodious ... Philip Martin (he is joy number two) leaps through the repertoire with clean and infectious Tlan.
