 Murray McLachlan


Most of the piano works of McCunn (whose operas are being rediscovered), McEwen, and Mackenzie, who is acknowledged to be one of Elgar’s main influences, are on this disc, all for the first time. Pieces ranging in mood from Chopin to Debussy via Liszt, and all with an  unmistakeable Scottish lilt. Voted one of the best CDs of 1996 by "Scotland’s Music"

                         *** ’outstanding’

“...an enterprising collection… excellently played by Murray McLachlan and well recorded “ -
 

The Penguin Guide

"Hamish McCunn offers perhaps the sweetest music here; The music of Sir Alexander Mackenzie is indebted to some fairly obvious Romantic models, as McLachlan’s well-informed notes point out, …it’s beautifully made for the instrument and effortlessly melodic - in a word, it’s lovely…an imaginative and intriguing CD. Recommended." 

Martin Anderson
 

Fanfare
