David Stanhope - piano
This is the third solo CD that David has recorded for Tall Poppies. (See also TP088 and TP135). The centrepiece here is Rachmaninoff's Preludes, Op 32, which David plays magnificently. Rounding out the programme are the Schumann and Fauré works, neither of which are for the faint-hearted pianist, Liszt's rarely played transcription of Mendelssohn's Wedding March and Elves' Dance, and lastly David's own transcription of Sibelius' song, The Tryst.
Treat yourself to some scintillating Aussie pianism!
