Music by Benjamin Britten, his teachers and mentors (John Ireland and Frank Bridge), and his pupils and successors (Lennox Berkeley, Ronald Stevenson and Colin Matthews). This CD contains the world première recording of Britten’s  A Little Idyll.

“What a wonderful pianist Anthony Goldstone is. He makes every one of these pieces sound its best – better than I’ve ever heard before… a great musical interpreter.” –

Lehman

American Record Guide

“Goldstone’s performance on this CD is excellent and makes each one of these works fresh, vital and essential. The programme notes are good and the sound quality is great. I recommend this disc to all lovers of British music and also to enthusiasts of piano music”

John France

"Goldstone’s fans (and he has many, world-wide) will know to expect exemplary presentation with illuminating liner notes, and this is no exception. Buy, and you will not have any regrets!" Peter Grahame Woolf
