Product details

Recorded for the first time, here is a comprehensive overview of the piano music of Arthur Benjamin, an Australian composer who spent most of his time in Europe and whose music has been neglected for years. It is performed by Ian Munro, whose affinity for this music is astonishing. He has been a devotee of Benjamin for years, and the quality of his research is clearly revealed in the annotations he has provided with this release.

Munro's biography of Benjamin is the only available analytical biography of this composer in the available literature. Also included with the CD is a charming introduction by Joan Trimble, a former student and colleague of Benjamin, and the pianist who premiered Jamaican Rumba! This music is accessible and virtuosic, and the children's pieces are thoroughly charming.

Duration: 78 min.

Capture session: recorded in Newcastle Conservatorium Concert Hall, in the University of Newcastle, July and October 1996, using the Stuart & Sons piano.

Recording level: DDD

Liner notes include biographical notes on composer and performer, and programme notes.
