Notes and Editorial Reviews

Edward Loder (1809–65), the scion of an important family of early-Victorian musicians, is one of the ‘lost generation’ of British composers living between Samuel Wesley’s time and the beginnings of the ‘British musical renaissance’.

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 had an uneven and ultimately tragic career: not only was he briefly imprisoned for debt; he ended his days a pauper, paralyzed 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
Read more invention of his own.

This CD release marked the 150th anniversary of Edward Loder’s death. Read less
