Edward Loder: Piano Music


Edward Loder (1809–65), scion of an important family of early-Victorian musicians, had an uneven and ultimately tragic career: he enjoyed brief success as an operatic composer and for a while he could rely on frequent commissions and publication for his songs and piano music. But not only was he briefly imprisoned for debt; he ended his days a pauper, paralysed and forgotten. Yet the best of his piano music – recorded here for the first time – shows a composer alert to developments in the music of Beethoven and Schubert and with a lively sense of invention of his own.
