Piano Album II

Piano Album II cover

This is CMC’s second collection of test pieces specially commissioned by the 1997 Guardian Dublin International Piano Competition with funds provided by The Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon. John Kinsella’s pianistic meditation, Reflection II, contrasts with Kevin Volans’ energetic March. Raymond Deane’s Chorale (After-pieces V) veers between austere minimalism and frenetic bravura, while Fergus Johnston’s The Oul’ Winda Rag was designed to give a ‘contemporary sparkle’, as the composer put it, to the predominantly nineteenth-century programmes to be expected from the competitors.
