The Great Escape - Music & More

This second volume of George Walker's piano music joins it's predecessor on Naxos 8.559916 (April 2024), together forming a unique complete piano works edition. On this new release Steinway Artist Alexandre Dossin performs the cyclical Fourth Piano Sonata, which alternates between sections of virtuoso muscularity and lyrical repose, and the Piano Concerto, which integrates expansive Classical forms with inspiration derived from songs by Duke Ellington, something also cleverly hidden in Guido's Hand. The album closes with Walker's passionate Fifth Piano Sonata.
