Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
The Danish composer Svend Erik Tarp was more inspired by the French than by the German musical culture that was otherwise predominant in his time. On this CD one can hear Tonya Lemoh's interpretation of piano music ranging from the composer's youth in the 1920s to 1956, when Tarp was at the height of his career. It is music of great seriousness but also great expressiveness, with a wealth of lyrical passages, infectious rhythms and captivating melodies. On one of Tonya Lemoh's previous releases BBC Music Magazine wrote:"Tonya Lemoh plays all the music with poetic sensitivity", with Gramophone calling her performance"powerful and eloquent".
