Piano Music by Herbert Howells & Bernard Stevens - Jeremy Filsell - Piano

Piano Music by Herbert Howells & Bernard Stevens - Jeremy Filsell - Piano
ID: GMCD7119
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

Neither Herbert Howells nor Bernard Stevens were prolific composers, and both - for different reasons - found themselves sidelined by more fashionable figures during their lifetimes. But the integrity of their music, the inherent nobility of their chosen expression, and their distinctive individuality, have ensured that their music has not died, but has found new and exciting champions - and responsive and eager audiences - amongst the younger music-lovers and record-buyers of today. This is all to the good, and when we hear such immediately compelling music as Howells’s three pieces from his Opus 14, alongside his much later Sonatina of 1971 (written in his 80th year) we must wonder as to why this music has been so comparatively overlooked.

The same is also true of the piano music of the brilliant Bernard Stevens. There are many who feel, with much justification, that Stevens’s reputation as a composer suffered greatly, and unfairly, from his championship of Communism - although he resigned from the Party following the Russian invasion of Hungary in 1956 - and yet his music speaks to us purely as music, and as nothing else. His voice, like Howells’s, is a distinctive one, music by a composer with something to say and - more importantly - with the technical means to say it.

The result is a body of piano music to set alongside his noble symphonies and concertos. The Sonata in One Movement is a fine work of considerable integrity and individuality - like the two other Stevens pieces on this disc, it demands a player of technical ability as well as of musical command, a player such as we find in the gifted pianist Jeremy Filsell, whose commitment to the music of both these English masters can be clearly discerned in his brilliant and sensitive playing.

Recorded at: The Arts Centre of the London Oratory School, Fulham, London by kind permission of the Headmaster and Bursar, January 4th & 5th 1996
The Belfast-born composer Howard Ferguson has enjoyed an enviable reputation amongst those who really know their British music of the 20th century: his music is not great in output, but is distinguished at all times by a fastidious craftsmanship and an inspired abundance of melody. Dame Myra Hess recorded his Piano Sonata and Bagatelles, and Denis Brain his Octet - all on 78rpm discs - so this outstanding composer has not been without distinguished advocates. His Second Violin Sonata of 1948 is in three cogent movements.
The First Violin Sonata by Eugène Goossens is an outstanding work, the neglect of which - as with all of this supremely-gifted composer’s music - is quite inexplicable. The slow movement was recorded on a 78rpm disc by Andre Mangeot and the composer himself over 70 years ago - this new recording marks the first time this work has appeared complete in the British record catalogues!
The sensational success of the Second Violin Sonata by John Ireland in 1917 - it was performed nine times in the following season - may well have inspired Goossens to write his Sonata. It is surely true to say that no other English chamber work of the 20th century was ever received with greater enthusiasm than this. It remains one of Ireland’s greatest masterpieces, and should be known by all lovers of English music.

Recorded at: Hillesden Church, Buckinghamshire, England - 1996

A Few months ago Guild Music issued “English Romanticism”, a collection of Violin Sonatas by Howard Ferguson, Eugene Goossens and John Ireland played by Oliver Lewis, violin, and Jeremy Filsell, piano (Guild GMCD 7120). The impact of the largely unknown First Violin Sonata by Eugene Goossens showed it to be a very great work. The success of this issue - critically and in terms of sales - was so marked that release plans for 1996 were changed in order to accommodate a follow-up album. This second CD, our new release this month, was recorded in May and is released in June!

This album is a brand-new collection of some of the most brilliant and best-loved of all favourite pieces for violin and piano, known and loved to millions of music-lovers the world over.

It offers the intelligent collector a superb and unique album which also contains some popular pieces which are but rarely recorded - pieces which every violinist will have played at some time during their career, but which do not always find their way onto compact disc.

This programme is distinguished by the most brilliant and sensitive playing by one of the leading European violinists of the day, who is sympathetically accompanied by one of Switzerland’s most gifted composers, conductors and pianists.

The recording, made in England in 1996, is state-of-the-art, and the entire collection is bound to be one of the most popular albums Guild has released in the past few years.

Recorded at Rosslyn Hill Unitarian Chapel, Hampstead, London 1996
Here is a rare coupling - the two great Romantic Cello Sonatas from the late 19th-century era of high-romanticism, joined on one CD, together with other music for cello and piano by Grieg and Rachmaninov.
The performances, by this highly-acclaimed young duo, are of exceptional passion and refinement, and the quality of the recording is one of the best Guild has achieved in recent years - which is saying a lot.
These two Sonatas - both of which were played in concert by Pablo Casals with their respective composers - have, in recent years, become to be recognised as high-points in the cello repertoire and have enjoyed a growing and enthusiastic audience for their inspired qualities.
They make a superb coupling, and in addition, we include some rare shorter music for cello and piano by both composers.

Recorded at Hillesden Church, Hillesden 1997
The music of the great English conductor and composer Eugène Goossens - who died in 1962 at the age of 69 - has been unjustly neglected for far too long, and one of the most surprisingly successful of all Guild releases in 1996 was the CD English Romanticism, with Violin Sonatas by Ireland, Ferguson and Goossens played by Oliver Lewis and Jeremy Filsell. Indeed, so marked was the impact of this album that we immediately asked these artists to record Goossens’s other Sonata - and his complete music for violin and piano - with the Elgar Sonata.
Now we come with the first album devoted entirely to all of Goossens’s solo piano music - a truly significant body of work which certainly demands virtuoso playing from the pianist. In the late 1910s and 1920s Goossens was regarded as the most important English composer of his generation, and some of the dedicatees of his piano music - including Benno Moiseiwitsch - arrest to the regard in which his music was held.
Not only does this CD include all of Goossens’s music specifically written for solo piano - as he composed two operas, premiered at Covent Garden, the vocal scores of which he compiled himself, the orchestral extracts of these operas themselves constitute authentic transcriptions for solo piano by the composer - and these are also included. Much of this music is being recorded for the first time.
The result is a fabulous CD, of the greatest musical significance, which is sure to appeal to all lovers of English music of the first half of the 20th century, and to those keen to seek out the little-known byways of our musical heritage.
