Around the start of the seventeenth century musical style in Europe underwent a remarkable transformation. During the first decades of the Baroque era, instrumental music underwent a deep transformation, the violin being central in the process. Composers, who were themselves violinists, expanded the technical limits of the instrument, developing a form of virtuosity with the bow that was very swiftly followed by an improvement of left-hand technique. The music for three violins and bass selected for this recording is typical of a XVIIth Century genre which disappeared rather quickly afterwards, although some remarkable works were still to be composed during the XVIIIth century. This selection, which borrows this repertoire to many different European countries, presents some of the most delighful Sonata's, ballets, chaconnes, fantasias, sinfonias and canon written.

Ronald Stevenson is an extraordinary figure, a composer-pianist in the grand tradition who has always worked with the highest ideals and fierce integrity. Stevenson trained at the Royal Manchester College of Music and the Conservatorio Santa Cecilia in Rome before settling in Scotland from the 1950s to follow a remarkable artistic path which has in many ways continued the work of the great composerpianists of the past.

Apart from composing, presenting and writing, Stevenson has given countless piano recitals, concerto performances and broadcasts for the BBC over the years.

Much of Stevenson’s output stems directly from re-arrangement and transcription of pieces which have profoundly moved him as an artist, and this new series of three discs most certainly shows this. Almost all of the featured pieces are new to the catalogue.

“Inevitably, perhaps, the quality of the music is variable – some of the pieces sound very much like written down improvisations – but it's never, ever dull, and its sheer imagination and energy are irrepressible. So too are McLachan's performances; occasionally one would like a little more tonal variety, but the dedication of his playing is without doubt immensely impressive.” The Guardian, 24th January 2013 ****

“I was extremely impressed by Murray McLachlan’s playing on these three superb discs. This complex, usually technically difficult - if not nearly impossible, at times - music demands a huge technique and considerable confidence to play and interpret successfully...This is an important release.” MusicWeb International, 17th April 2013

“McLachlan proves an impressive advocate, coping well with all the virtuoso demands, though the piano tone tends to be rather shallow and clangy. Not that that ever gets in the way of enjoyment of this important, groundbreaking issue celebrating the work of a composer too long neglected.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2013
