Andrew Downes (b.1950) piano music traces a telling journey across more than four decades. Between the lean lines of the sharply defined, astringently Sonatina and the mellower opulence of the Seven Postludes from 40 years later there lies a lifetime of artistic growth. The piano music, here recorded complete for the first time, provides a revealing and rewarding companion and parallel narrative to the narrative to the cycle of symphonic works, committed to disc by the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra in2016. It is a remarkable body of work representing a composer of technical fastidiousness, eclectic taste and warm-hearted sincerity.
