Peter Hill’s recording of Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier, Book II wowed critics across the board in January 2012, prompting The Guardian to write: ‘With luck this is the first in a series of Bach recordings from Hill, and let’s hope Book I of the “48” follows soon.’

His performances of Bach’s first volume of masterpieces exhibit all the qualities that were identified by reviewers of Hill’s previous traversal - ‘warmth, clarity and insight’ (Classical Music Magazine,
Editor’s Choice), ‘vital communication’ (HiFi Critic),‘impeccable’ (BBC Radio 3 CD Review, Disc of the Week), ‘shimmering’ (BBC Music Magazine), ‘liquescent’ (International Record Review).

One of the leading British pianists of his generation, Peter Hill is known for his performances and recordings of twentieth-century and contemporary music as well as the classical repertoire. His complete cycles of Messiaen and of Berg, Schoenberg and Webern have received superlative acclaim. The Messiaen was described as ‘one of the most impressive solo recording projects of recent years’ (New York Times), and won Messiaen’s endorsement: ‘Beautiful technique, a true poet: I am a passionate admirer of Peter Hill’s playing’. Both sets feature in the book 1001 Classical Recordings You Must Hear Before You Die.

Music of extraordinary range and power composed at the dawn of the Space Age, Ronald Stevenson’s Passacaglia on DSCH was long claimed as the biggest single stretch of music ever written for piano. It is a veritable world tour of styles as well as a single-minded exploration of its generating motif, and rising star James Willshire -- who received five-star acclaim in 2011 for his Delphian debut disc of music by Rory Boyle - has the technique and vaulting ambition to match both the work's grandeur and its immense wealth of detail.

Willshire gave the 1955 Variations on a Theme of Pizzetti its belated concert premiere just this year, and now commits it to disc as one of a number of premiere recordings. The more recent, and equally substantial Fugue, Variations and Epilogue on a Theme by Arnold Bax crystallises Stevenson’s lifelong devotion to a Celtic aesthetic as well as foregrounding his innovative approach to variation technique. A clutch of shorter works completes the picture, bringing to light some of Stevenson’s less often remarked qualities - charm, exuberance, wit and grace.

In 2000, at the age of fifteen, James was awarded an Educational Scholarship in the London International Piano Competition, the youngest British pianist to be thus recognised. He has performed at festivals throughout the UK and abroad, including the Lichfield, Cheltenham, and Winchester Festivals and many more.

[with *Richard Beauchamp and †John Cameron additional pianists]

In 2002 Simon Smith made his recording debut on Delphian in a disc of James MacMillan’s complete piano music, paired with Stuart MacRae’s Piano Sonata. Recordings of music by Hafliði Hallgrímsson and Thomas Wilson have followed. In this new, substantial outing Smith turns from music-making in Scotland to another of his lifelong loves, the music of Alfred Schnittke.

This two-disc set comprises Schnittke’s entire published output for solo piano (including one piece for piano duet and another for six hands at one keyboard). The Russian composer’s music often makes gargantuan demands of the player. Smith’s technical prowess, astonishing dynamic palette and heartfelt musicality make him its ideal exponent.

A recognised authority in 20th century and contemporary music, Peter Hill turns for the first time on disc to another of his lifelong preoccupations - the music of JS Bach. On this new recording, Hill brings his customary scholarly acumen and crystalline musical intelligence to bear on Book two of the ‘48’ - music of ‘unsurpassed inventiveness’.

David Wilde plays Schumann

The original first-movement manuscript of Schumann's Fantasie in C has a number of differences from the editions commonly used today - significant tempo and textual changes which David Wilde has reinstated in a revelatory reading of this tumultuous love-poem to the young Clara. In contrast, Kinderszenen, a touching and vernal evocation of childhood, is given a performance of artless innocence that chimes with Wilde's conviction that ‘it shouldn't sound mature'. Carnaval's colourful cast of characters is viscerally and imaginatively brought to life, culminating in Wilde's fearsome ‘March against the Philistines'.

A veteran of the Romantic piano tradition, David Wilde brings six decades of intense experience to this recital. His playing harks back to a time when audiences expected much more from the performer. This is Schumann with personality - listeners searching for a ‘safe' experience will be disappointed.

Firma Melodiya presents a premiere of a unique work of 20th century Russian music - 24 Preludes and Fugues by Vsevolod Zaderatsky.
To say that the composer’s fate was tragic means to say nothing. A composer, pianist and conductor, Zaderatsky went through all circles of Soviet hell - arrests, imprisonments, Gulag, exiles, persecution for “formalism”… However, nothing could crush the man’s mighty craving for creation. He wrote his main work in the period of 1937 to 1939 in a prison camp in Kolyma using telegraph forms as music paper…
A representative of Taneyev’s school, Zaderatsky was perhaps the only composer who ventured upon continuation of his teacher’s polyphonic tradition. Zaderatsky revived Bach’s tradition on his own even before Hindemith and Shostakovich created their cycles of the kind. Here, the timehonoured form is combined with a quite peculiar interpretation of “tonal” thinking. At the same time, the composer’s style is a synthesis of the most significant achievements in the music of the first half of the last century.
Vsevolod Zaderatsky’s works began to draw attention of musicians and the public as late as in the 21st century. The 24 Preludes and Fugues were performed entirely for the first time in 2014 in Moscow. Now they have been put on record by a group of young pianists, prize-winners of international competitions and prominent representatives of performing art of their generation. We are pleased to present Ksenia Bashmet, Yuri Favorin, Nikita Mndoyants, Lukas Geniušas, Andrei Gugnin and Andrei Yaroshinsky.
