William Hurlstone: Complete Piano Music

William Hurlstone: Complete Piano Music

London-born William Yeates Hurlstone was only 30 when he died, in May 1906, and yet the music he was able to compose during his short life shows remarkable accomplishment. This CD presents the first-ever recording of his complete piano music, which develops from confident childhood essays, takes on board the influences of Chopin and Brahms, and matures into an assured and natural style balancing lyricism and drama.

1 review for William Hurlstone: Complete Piano Music

  1. :

    “Finally, Toccata Classics expands our knowledge of William Hurlstone, an English composer who died at the tender age of 30 in 1906. Some readers may be familiar with the Piano Sonata; Toccata prefaces Fujimura’s performance with no fewer than eleven first recordings. Fujimura is a most powerful advocate for this incredibly strong music.” —Fanfare Magazine, Want List of Colin Clarke, November/December 2015
