Bax - Piano Works Volume 4

Music for Two Pianos


Bax:

Festival Overture

The Poisoned Fountain

Moy Mell (An Irish Tone-Poem)

Sonata for Two Pianos

The large-scale Sonata for Two Pianos includes a slow movement which is formally similar to some of the orchestral tone poems, and evokes an ancient Celtic world in a striking parallel with Bax’s orchestral The Garden of Fand.

BBC Music Magazine

October 2007

****

“…a disc that enlarges one's view of Bax, and that effect is certainly due to the committed and idiomatic playing of Ashley Wass and Martin Roscoe. Their vigour and brio in the Vivo e feroce finale of the Sonata is highly exhilarating, while their sensitivity of touch and pedalling are in display in the murky waters of The Poisoned Fountain. Much to be recommended.”

Gramophone Magazine

“I need merely confirm that Ashley Wass [is an] outstandingly idiomatic and breathtakingly secure interpreter of all this attractive material [who has been] been recorded with notable fidelity. A peach of a disc, no question about it.”

Gramophone Magazine

November 2007

“Grab this irresistible opportunity to explore Bax's two-piano output. …Ashley Wass and Martin Roscoe are outstandingly idiomatic and breathtakingly secure interpreters of all this attractive material and they have been recorded with notable fidelity. A peach of a disc, no question about it.”
