Hurlstone Variations on a Hungarian Air


Hurlstone Variations on a Hungarian Air


"What a grievous loss to British music was William Hurlstone's early demise (a 30-year-old victim of bronchial asthma); happily, this delightful compilation should do a great deal to help keep his reputation alive. Of the two enormously enjoyable sets of variations recorded here, it's the later Variations on a Hungarian Air which excites especial admiration...this superbly concise essay packs a wealth of first-rate invention and really effective contrast into its ten-and-a-half minute duration. As usual Lyrita's sonics are exemplary." Andrew Achenbach, Gramophone *** PENGUIN GUIDE 2010
