Martin Jones’ complete Lutyens piano music – volume 2 released
Resonus Classics has released the second volume of Martin Jones’s landmark survey of the piano works of Elisabeth Lutyens.
It features further world premiere recordings including pieces from her early maturity such as The Check Book, twelve miniatures for children; Piano e Forte that recalls Lutyens’s lifelong enthusiasm for the music of Debussy and explores the possibilities of the instrument in a way she had never attempted before; and Maybe–Encore Op. 159, her final work for piano composed in 1982. Also included is an early unpublished sonata movement (Allegro molto) possibly written as early as the 1930s.
