Press quotes

“... it is a superb record. Get it.”

Herald Sun

“Move is to be praised for telling us which pianist plays primo, secondo, or terzo. Most recordings fail to do this ... I found the piano sound to be good ... the recorded sound is clean.”

The Delian, USA

“Pianism of the highest order, stamped with individuality and personality.”

Brisbane Courier Mail

“The pianists Max Cooke, Darryl Coote and Robert Chamberlain are to be congratulated - I have no hesitation in recommending this compact disc to all music enthusiasts”

Performers

Composers

Arthur Benjamin

Australian composer Arthur Benjamin wrote numerous 'serious' compositions, including several operas, orchestral works, a harmonica concerto (premiered by Larry Adler), vocal and chamber music, and also had a great commercial success with his Jamaican Rumba (1938).

Johann Sebastian Bach

Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer, organist, harpsichordist, violist, and violinist whose sacred and secular works for choir, orchestra, and solo instruments drew together the strands of the Baroque period and brought it to its ultimate maturity.

Felix Mendelssohn

Jakob Ludwig Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (1809–1847) was a German composer, pianist, organist and conductor of the early Romantic period. Mendelssohn's work includes symphonies, concerti, oratorios, piano music and chamber music.

Percy Grainger

Percy Aldridge Grainger (1882-1961) is one of Australia's best known composers. A brilliant arranger of folk music but also a pioneer in percussion and electronic music, Grainger's Warriors was recently heard in the opening ceremony of the Sydney 2000 Olympics.

Franz Schubert

Franz Peter Schubert was an Austrian composer. Today, Schubert is admired as one of the leading exponents of the early Romantic era in music and he remains one of the most frequently performed composers.

Gabriel Fauré

Gabriel Urbain Fauré was a French composer, pianist, organist and teacher. He was one of the foremost French composers of his era, and his musical style influenced many 20th century composers.

Michael Easton

Michael Easton's music reflects his own ebullience, energy and good humor. It is entirely accessible - reliant upon ear-catching melodies, piquant harmonies, and brilliant orchestration.

Robert Stoltz

Robert Stoltz was a composer who wrote an infinite number of unforgettable melodies, but his life which spanned through to the second half of this century placed him a little too late to capture all the glitter of the Viennese ballrooms of the Strauss era.

Percy Grainger

Percy Aldridge Grainger (1882-1961) is one of Australia's best known composers. A brilliant arranger of folk music but also a pioneer in percussion and electronic music, Grainger's Warriors was recently heard in the opening ceremony of the Sydney 2000 Olympics.
