Neglected piano scores
Oliver Condy and David Owen Norris look through our found scores

In the September issue, the BBC Music team set itself the task of uncovering neglected piano masterpieces in Britain's antiques and charity shops. We each leafed through piles of dusty old scores and found two pieces we hoped would prove a rare and special find. Pianist and BBC Music Magazine columnist David Owen Norris performed each of the works and gave his verdict on them - listen to David's performances below.
