Heritage presents a disc of twentieth-century Scottish piano music performed by Richard Deering. Four works by William Wordsworth are represented, amongst them the imposing Piano Sonata. Wordsworth’s piano music has been unjustly neglected on record until very recently. Deering completes his recital with works written especially for him – Thomas Wilson’s Incunabula and Edward McGuire’s Prelude 7 and Six Small Pieces in C major.

Recognised as an authority on British music through  his lectures, concerts, broadcasts, recordings and writings, Richard Deering has been entrusted with many first performances by leading composers – Malcolm Arnold, Malcolm Williamson, Thomas Wilson, Charles Camilleri, Edward Gregson, Edward McGuire and Brian Chapple – while many composers have written especially for him. He has commissioned several new works and enjoyed close working relationships with Alan Rawsthorne, Elisabeth Lutyens, Gerard Victory, Bernard Stevens, James Wilson, and William Alwyn. In 1981 he was elected a member of the Royal Philharmonic Society for ‘distinguished services to British music’.
