(b 1928 )

The Scottish composer, pianist and writer Ronald Stevenson was born in Blackburn in 1928 and studied at the Royal Manchester College of Music, later settling in Scotland, where he has devoted himself particularly to composition. His most remarkable work is the Passacaglia on DSCH, based on the notes representing the name of Shostakovich. The Passacaglia, which takes some eighty minutes to perform, demonstrates the breadth of his vision, his technical competence and the wide range of his musical imagination.
