About

Ronald Stevenson is an extraordinary figure, a composer-pianist in the grand tradition who has always worked with the highest ideals and fierce integrity. Stevenson trained at the Royal Manchester College of Music and the Conservatorio Santa Cecilia in Rome before settling in Scotland from the 1950s to follow a remarkable artistic path which has in many ways continued the work of the great composer-pianists of the past.

Apart from composing, presenting and writing, Stevenson has given countless piano recitals, concerto performances and broadcasts for the BBC over the years.

Much of Stevenson’s output stems directly from re-arrangement and transcription of pieces which have profoundly moved him as an artist, and this new series of three discs most certainly shows this. Almost all of the featured pieces are new to the catalogue.

Murray McLachlan
is editor of ‘Piano Professional’ Magazine, as well as Chair of the UK section of the European Piano Teachers’ Association (EPTA UK). As well as performing and teaching, he is well known internationally for his numerous articles on Piano technique and repertoire. This includes extended columns which have appeared in ‘International Piano’, ‘Pianist’ and ‘Piano’ Magazines.

Murray McLachlan is a pianist with a virtuoso technique and a sure sense of line. His timing and phrasing are impeccable, and his tone-full but unforced in the powerful passages, gentle and restrained in the more lyrical- is a perpetual delight” - BBC Music Magazine
