About this Recording

GREGSON, E.: Piano Solo Music (Complete) - An Album for my Friends / Piano Sonata / 6 Little Pieces (M. and R. McLachlan, E. Gregson)

Murray McLachlan says of Edward Gregson’s piano music that ‘he knows the importance of restraint and control; nothing is overly stated, repeated or extended. Concentration and craftsmanship permeate every bar that the composer has penned.’ Renowned for his orchestral oeuvre, Gregson shows us a more intimate but no less impressive side in his piano music. From the Lullaby composed while a student, to the Tippett-inspired Piano Sonata, we are charmed, moved and thrilled in equal measure by this programme of his complete music for solo piano.


Gregson, Edward
