Olwen Morris studied under Vlado Perlemuter pupil of Cartot and friend of Faure and Ravel, nad has given many solo BBC recitals and has played the major concert halls. Beethoven’s late piano sonatas Op.109, Op110 lead us through two different sound journeys. We experience human feelings and thoughts – optimism, tragedy, calm, anger, resignation and struggle. Beethoven’s Six Variations are concisely constructed but kaleidoscopic in effect, with variety of keys, titles and styles Mendelssohn was one of several well-known composers including Schumann and Liszt who were asked to write a work for inclusion in an album of works, the proceeds of which were used to erect a statue to Beethoven. Schubert’s two sets of impromptus contain some of his most popular piano works. Faure’s Nocturne No.6 was written after a six year break from writing for the piano and was a favourite work of Cortot. The six works here by Debussy and Ravel were written between 1903 and 1905 and all bear descriptive titles and take us to a another dimension in sound experience- more tactile and sensual.
