 Tom Poster - (piano)
   


Song and dance have formed the root of music from ancient times to the present day, and it was their universal qualities that led me to choose them as the dual theme around which to build this recital disc. Most of the repertoire here has an obvious link to a particular song- or dance-related form, whether opera, ballet, Lied, courtly dance or folk song, though in one or two cases the theme is approached more obliquely. Perennial favourites sit alongside lesser-known works which I feel deserve a more frequent airing, and while at first glance some of the pieces are not the most obvious of bedfellows, their juxtaposition reveals unexpected resonances.

Although this collection eschews a strict chronological order, it does open with its earliest work, albeit not in its original form. 

This album, ends as it began, with a simply rendered transcription (in this case my own) of one of the most perfect melodies ever written.

"... a recital that is both lovely and lovable."

Jessica Duchen - BBC Music magazine - March 2014


"...I am mightily impressed by his lovely new album, In Dance And Song, whose titling creates a context into which Poster pours an eclectic repertoire. The range is enormous, opening with a transcription of Gluck’s Dance Of The Blessed Spirits and on through peasant dances by Grieg, folk songs by Bartok, Schubert’s gorgeous G flat Impromptu, a Chopin Polonaise, a transparent account of Ravel’s Pavane and two of Liszt’s arrangements of Schumann’s songs. There is also a revealing performance of the Shrove Tide Fair from Petrushka, where Poster changes the perspective of the piece, and the pianist’s own transcription of Gershwin’s Someone To Watch Over Me."

Michael Tumelty - Herald Scotland - 5 January 2014
