When Australian composer Malcolm Williamson died in 2003, we lost one of the finest composers this country has produced.
Williamson was the first non-British composer to be appointed Master of the Queen’s Music.
This CD is the first complete recording of Williamson’s piano music.
Australian pianist Antony Gray gives stunning performances of these highly accessible and inventive works. Indeed the composer himself said of Gray’s playing ‘… [he] belongs to that small group of internationally distinguished pianists who blend depth of understanding with technical mastery.’
