Ireland Piano Concerto, These Things Shall Be


Ireland Piano Concerto, These Things Shall Be


"Ireland's Piano Concerto is an early 20th century masterpiece, a real crowd-pleaser in a Prokofiev-meets-Gershwin sort of way. Eric Parkin is the pianist most closely associated with Ireland's work, and this recording is the finest available. Parkin plays with an ease of rhythm, a flexibility and flow that makes the music swing as it must, and (as usual) Lyrita's sonics are terrific." David Hurwitz, "This is the essential John Ireland containing three works that stand among the composer's performances as freshly conceived and played as they were when first issued almost four decades ago."
