The two CDs contain Antonín’s Major Piano Works, written for the internationally known Canadian-born pianist, Margaret Bruce. In the 24 Preludes he explores all facets of piano-playing, technically and emotionally; they are full of dances and folk tunes which are a rich source of his Czech heritage. The Fantasia quasi una sonata was premièred by Margaret Bruce at the Purcell Room in the early 80’s, and the final work recorded is the Concertino for piano and strings.
These CDs will be sold at events organised by the BCSA (such as, for example, our Get to know you evening on Wednesday 10 August); they cost £12 for the two and can be bought only in exchange for a cheque, payable to The Hon. Mrs. M.A. Lumley-Savile.
They can also be ordered from the Record Service of The Dvořák Society for £14.50 including postage and packing.
