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.
