A possible bargain? A cd on a market stall Arnold Bax Piano Works 2
Ashley Wass, piano. Naxos 8.557592
Just one pound, for which I get a long cd (73:16) Two Sonatas 3 and 4, Water Music, Winter Waters, Country-Tune and O Dame Get Up and Bake Your Pies
I like the 4th Sonata especially, not so easy to play though! The 'folk-tune' pieces are somewhat easier, but again can be deceptive; A Hill Tune
definitely so (as became evident when I first attempted the piece) with quintuplets above the tenor melody line.
I got the pick of a large amount of early keyboard music today, quite unexpectedly (acquaintance of Head of Dept wanting to see it go to a good home). The music must have come from a serious 'Early Keyboard' player: The Fitzwilliam Virginal Book
, Bull, Byrd, Gibbons, Morley, Purcell, Tisdall, Farnaby, The Mulliner Book
To do it justice I think I need some lessons with a harpsichordist, so my piano teacher is going to see who best to contact.
