Review quote

. . . for GBP14.95, you can now have four terrific works plus the inimitable, delightful duet set called The Creel. None of this is easy but all of it has character and pianistic integrity and should definitely bring new admirers to this fine composer. My tip of the month. * John York, Piano Magazine May 05 * Rawsthorne is lauded as one of the most individual British composers of the 20th century and these Selected Piano Pieces, which bring together all of his most popular work, validate such claims. The four Bagatelles typify Rawsthorne's intuitive understanding of the piano and present an emotionally varied and harmonically ambiguous journey, from the dynamic opening allegro to the final tranquil lento in 12/8. A refined Sonatina, Four Romantic Pieces, Theme and Four Studies and The Creel (an approachable duet suite about fish - live ones) follow. Fresh contemporary material with wide appeal for the intermediate pianist and above. * Alec Boulton, Music Teacher August 05 *show more

About Alan Rawsthorne

After the war - during which Rawsthorne served in the Army - he devoted the bulk of his time to composition. Rawsthorne was awarded the CBE in 1961, and was made an Honorary Doctor of Music by Liverpool, Essex, and Belfast Universities. He died in Cambridge on 24 July 1971.show more
