Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

A fellow countryman of John Field's, Micheal O'Rourke performs this 2-CD recital with intelligence and taste, much of the repertoire not otherwise available. A large amount of the music has the quiet charm one associates with the work of this delightful early-eighteenth- century virtuoso Irish pianist and composer, and the collection includes all four surviving sonatas, complemented with a generous miscellany of rarely recorded or performed miniatures.

BBC Music Magazine
Field's impeccably classical sonatas do not plumb great depths, but are consistently engaging in Míceál O'Rourke's expert hands. The gathering of shorter pieces offers greater variety.

Penguin Guide
O'Rourke is as sympathetic and sensitive an advocate of these rarities as one could wish for.
