About

"I've put together this collection of piano works to celebrate the lives of composer friends of mine. There are new recordings mixed with existing recordings I have made over the years. The first new recording is the final piano work composed by Anthony Gilbert - Sonata no.4 performed here by Richard Casey. There are two short works by the pianist and composer John Ogdon performed here by Joanna Lam. I have composed a Sonata, which I also play, in memory of my dear friend and cofounder of Prima Facie, Giles Easterbrook. This disc also celebrates the lives of Peter Dickinson, John McCabe and Gordon Crosse, all of whom gave so much music and greatly influenced me and the Prima Facie label. In addition, there are works by Daryl Runswick and Jean Hasse, both composer friends who have given permission to include their recordings on this album." - Stephen Plews, Prima Facie Records, April 2024
