Description

Gathering Storm Clouds

Ravishing British music of the early 20th century for piano, drawing on the love of composers for town (Ireland’s Three London pieces) and country (Vaughan Williams’ rarely heard The lake in the mountains), nature (Delius’s On hearing the first cuckoo in spring and rare works by Ivor Gurney) and history (Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis, transcribed for two pianos). The pastoral idyll is shattered by Bridge’s Sonata for piano, expressing the composer’s reaction to accounts of First World War atrocities.
