 Graham J. Lloyd Soloist


As a composer of art-song, Ian Venables is considered to be one of the most important writing today. The Songs of Ian Venables (NX 2514), Volume 21 of Naxos’ critically acclaimed English Song Series, was the first devoted to a living composer. This new recording introduces us to his music for solo piano and brings together works written between 1975 and 2001. It is Venables’ singular melodic gift and highly inventive use of harmony that combine to give us works that range from the deeply reflective and wistful to those in a lighter vein, full of charm and joie de vivre.

"... Very strongly recommended, and not just to lovers of English music."  *****

Ricardo Risaliti - Musica magazine - October 2013


"... Graham Lloyd’s playing is musically and technically satisfying, and Naxo’s engineering and mastering captures the piano beautifully."

Rob Haskins - American Record Guide - September/October 2013


"I was hugely impressed with Graham J. Lloyd’s performance of all this music. He has a sympathy for, and understanding of, Venables’ aesthetic that discloses itself in virtually every bar of the music. I would commend this CD to all British music enthusiasts. It is the perfect complement to the increasing number of CDs that showcase Ian Venables’ undoubted mastery of English song and chamber music. Other desiderata must be the three important works for brass ensemble including the Triptych for Brass and Percussion, op 21 and the Three Bridges Suite for Jazz Ensemble Op 18."
