Composers

Notes & Reviews:

In recent years, York Bowen the composer has enjoyed a spectacular revival. However, until now, his talents as pianist (barring one recording for Lyrita) have not been heard since the days of 78s. At the height of his success in the beginning of the 20th century, Bowen was well known as a soloist. Bowen’s recording of Beethoven Fourth Piano Concerto was the very first recording of the work. Through all the featured works on this CD we hear a pianist who plays in the 'grand manner.' That, as well as his preference for romantic repertoire, reveal him as somewhat atypical of English pianists of his time and earned him the nickname 'the English Rachmaninov.'
