MacMillan / MacRae: Piano works

The debut of pianist Simon Smith in a programme of works by two leading Scottish composers. The disc includes the complete piano oeuvre to date of James MacMillan, and also features the world premiere recording of Stuart MacRae’s Piano Sonata.

In a rendering that the composer has called ‘extraordinary’, this performance spills forth in a fiery display of technical virtuosity.


"an outstanding player with a huge expressive range: both composers are
fortunate indeed to have such an advocate"
