Description: Back in the 80s, Hobson recorded a series of discs for Arabesque called “The London Piano School”. Now he is moving on to the forgotten English early Victorians with this disc of virtuoso salon-style music from a member of an important musical family. Compare Loder to Henri Herz or to William Vincent Wallace to get an idea of what’s here. A disc of Loder’s cousin Kate Fanny Loder’s piano music is next. Ian Hobson (piano).
