Orlando Gibbons Complete Keyboard Works (DXL 1126)

£13.99

Description

The keyboard output of Orlando Gibbons (1583-1625) still represents a small but significant blind spot in the perception of the work of one of England’s greatest composers.  The time is ripe for a fresh assessment of the whole of this part of Gibbons’ oeuvre and this collection by pianist Daniel-Ben Pienaar presents just that.Daniel-Ben Pienaar was born in South Africa, where he made his debut aged 14 in the Liszt E flat Concerto. After winning his country’s National Youth Music Competition and the University of South Africa Overseas Music Scholarship Competition, he entered the Royal Academy of Music in London, where he won the Queen’s Commendation in 1997 and held the Hodgson Fellowship in 1997/8. He is currently piano professor at the Royal Academy of Music.
