Description: Pianist McLachlan says of Gregson’s piano music that “he knows the importance of restraint and control; nothing is overly stated, repeated or extended. Concentration and craftsmanship permeate every bar that the composer has penned”. Renowned for his orchestral oeuvre, Gregson shows us a more intimate but no less impressive side in his piano music. From the Lullaby composed while a student, to the Tippett-inspired sonata, one is charmed, moved and thrilled in equal measure by this program of his complete music for solo piano. Murray McLachlan (piano).
