PERFORMER: Julian Milford (piano)
CATALOGUE NO: CHAN 9825
Highly attractive music, very attractively played. Alwyn’s piano music, reminiscent of Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Debussy and Chabrier at their most benign, is melodically supple, rhythmically buoyant and very idiomatically written, and Julian Milford plays it with impeccable stylishness. Warmly recommended. Jeremy Siepmann
