‘The Jazz Age for Piano Duo’ – Goldstone and Clemmow

Above all other periods, the 'roaring' 1920s were possibly the years of greatest carefree feeling in British society; America too, to an extent despite the Prohibition and limitations on personal freedom. The new dance crazes, from the foxtrot to the Charleston, Black Bottom and tango, together with the ever increasing popularity of jazz and blues idioms which created the 'hot dance' number, created a golden era in light music, which was eagerly taken up by 'serious' composers; here we have a parade of gems - major works from Gershwin and Milhaud, to miniatures full of fun. Exquisitely performed as ever by Britain's top duo.





’The Roaring Twenties encapsulated in two major ’serious’ jazz works: Gershwin’s ’An American in Paris’ and Milhaud’s ’Creation du Monde’ with wonderful pieces from Moyzes and hill and the first recording of several of the ’Easy Dances’ miniatures by Matyas Seiber.

"... a highly recommended disc."
