Wallace was, from his youth, steeped in Irish and Scottish traditional music. In 1848, five years after his brilliant successes in New York as a virtuoso pianist, he published his first set of arrangements, others following almost to the year of his death. In these ingenious and lovely works, written for the burgeoning domestic market, he avoids sentimentality, concentrating instead on warmth, wit, a touch of self-quotation, and brilliance. Rosemary Tuck and Richard Bonynge are the world’s leading interpreters of Wallace’s music. Volume 1 is available on 8572774.

BBC Music Magazine

****

“Rosemary Tuck and Richard Bonynge have previously made an excellent fist of tackling Wallace's music...Many of these pieces were designed to be playable by talented amateurs, and the eschewal of showy virtuoso writing becomes a virtue in itself. Even relatively simple music needs to be played with skill, clarity of vision and honest feeling. Tuck shows these in abundance, producing another lively, engaging recital.”

MusicWeb International

“One can well comprehend the popularity of these works...The four-handed Ye Banks and Brae, in which Rosemary Tuck is joined by Richard Bonynge, is particularly spectacular, making this altogether a satisfying and enjoyable release.”
