Description

British pianist George King brings together a series of 21st century pieces, including the first recording of Philip Cashian’s Ben Hartley pieces and of his own piano etudes. In his search for the ‘new’ in music, as a Jazz and Classical composer/pianist, George shares with the listener the sheer pleasure of performing these pieces, always maintaining coherence and pianistic brilliancy, and shares the excitement of discovering great piano writing with challenging and very diverse original music.
