The complete solo piano music of Kenneth Leighton (1929-1988) is presented for the first time, on three discs containing many world premiere recordings. Written for Leighton’s own instrument, and played here by his distinguished pupil Angela Brownridge, these works span Leighton’s entire compositional career.
“An eloquent survey of Leighton’s substantial and marvellously idiomatic piano music…this is an important set that deserves widespread currency.”
“Brownridge plays superbly throughout – at all times, she is fully up to the technical, intellectual and characterizing demands of this music, and the recording quality of her instrument is consistently excellent…very strongly recommended.”
