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

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

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.

Ready Steady Blow! - Music for beginner oboists

Ready Steady Blow! - Music for beginner oboists
ID: CC2010
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Oboe

This CD is recorded by the Graduate Students of Trinity College of Music in London, who took their post-Graduate Diploma in performing in June 2004

In the CD booklet the oboists talk about how they got started on the oboe. It has 16 pages in full colour (English only), with more photos and information, and how to obtain the music.

The main purpose of this CD is to show that there is a wealth of good music, in many styles, available to the oboe beginner. These pieces are within the general Grade 3 level, and some of them can be played after just a few lessons, so that learning the oboe can be a musical experience right from the beginning. The tracks are marked 0 to 3, to indicate their general technical level, where 0 indicates a pre-Grade 1 piece.
There are two exceptions to the Grade 3 limit - Mozart's La ci Darem (Grade 4), because it points the way to a new world of musical expression, and Hedwig's Theme from Harry Potter, because, as one teacher put it, it is by far the nicest way to learn the bottom two notes on the oboe.
The selection was made in consultation with a number of teachers. I asked them which pieces their pupils responded to with enthusiasm. I soon noticed the same pieces being mentioned time and again. Some pieces were liked by some teachers and not by others, and I added in my own preferences, and take full responsibility for the final choice.
It was also necessary to stick to a smallish number of books or tutors, so that the pupil is not faced with a large music bill. Where only one piece has been included from a particular collection, it always means that there are other equally good pieces in that book. Exclusion of a book of pieces does not mean it is not good. Attention was also paid to the various exam syllabuses for Grades 1 to 3; some of these pieces appear there, some do not.
