Catalogue Number: 01W038
Description: Published in 1920 and lasting 27 minutes, the Hans Andersen pieces, engaging mood pictures and character sketches, are unabashedly narrative in intent, while the slightly earlier Studies combine pedagogical intent with a look back over the history of European Romantic piano études; Bowen played some of them in concert. Nicolas Namoradze (piano).
