Piano Album II

Piano Album II cover
€18.50 

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.
