York Bowen was described by Saint-Saëns as ‘the most remarkable of the young British composers’. His 24 Preludes form a sequence of concise, richly expressive and directly communicative studies.

The Berceuse Op.83 ranks amongst Bowen’s most intimate scores, while the sophisticated Suite Mignonne demands the most delicate of touches from the pianist.

The Brazilian pianist Christina Ortiz followed her Gold Medal win at the 3rd Van Cliburn International Piano Competition with an invaluable period of tuition under the guidance of the legendary Rudolph Serkin. Her natural musicality and masterful craftsmanship have secured her a place among the most respected pianists in the world, both as a recitalist, concerto soloist and teacher. She has performed with some of the world’s leading orchestras and has recorded some 30 albums for a number of labels.
