Product details

This set of CDs has arisen from the pianist Ian Munro's enormous love of Benjamin. With a stellar cast of musicians in the Tall Poppies Ensemble, he has made a recording which brings some major and very neglected works to the public eye (or should that be ear!)

This CD contains the Violin Sonatina and several charming violin miniatures played which characteristic elan by John Harding; Esther van Stralen gives a blistering account of the challenging viola sonata; David Pereira plays the charming Cello Sonatina with its jaunty little march; Peter Jenkin brings consummate artistry to the virtuoso clarinet work Tombeau de Ravel. And of course the CD starts with the eponymous Jamaican Rumba in a scintillating version for violin transcribed by William Primrose for Jascha Heifetz.

Duration: 72 min.
