Murray McLachlan - 'Ronald Stevenson Piano Music' (b1926) (Divine Art)

Murray McLachlan -- 'Ronald Stevenson Piano Music' (b1926) (Divine Art)

Ronald Stevenson is a composer and arranger of merit earning praise from Yehudi Menuhin along the way. He seems to have traversed the road less travelled where fame and notoriety are concerned. This excellently presented three CD pack may go some way to addressing that. Ever blurring the lines between pure arranging and free composition, Stevenson’s additions and interpretations appear deceptively authentic as if they could have always been part of the pieces in the first place. Played throughout with vitality and feeling by Murray McLachlan on a beautiful sounding Steinway, this album is undoubtably one for lovers of serious piano music.
