Hafliði Hallgrímsson: Music for solo piano

  • SUMMARY
  • TRACK LISTING
  • REVIEWS
  • INFO

Best known for a series of works for solo instruments and orchestra – including a highly successful concerto for his own instrument, the cello – Hafliði Hallgrímsson is also a master of the epigrammatic miniature. The piano music on this disc spans his career from 1963 to 2008, and the brilliant young pianist Simon Smith is a vital advocate of its varied colours, textures and resonances.

"Simon Smith proves an admirable guide to this often engrossing music; his playing enhanced by the close but never airless sound."
