Notes and Editorial Reviews

York Bowen has been described as 'the English Rachmaninov'. He was a prodigious pianist whose searching and richly expressive music is known to only a few seekers of hidden musical treasures. As a young composer he was highly regarded. Camille Saint-Saëns described him as 'the most remarkable Kreisler'. As many newspapers of the time testify, his concerts were always a special event. The reason for his subsequent obscurity remains a mystery, for his distinctive music is of the highest quality. York Bowen has been described as 'the English Rachmaninov'.
