Stephen Dodgson won Royal Philharmonic Society prizes for his early compositions, which signalled his emergence as a significant figure in British musical life. Though he composed in most genres he wrote with particular distinction for guitar and harpsichord and his sets of Inventions for harpsichord span a period of almost forty years. Scarlatti remained his inspiratino both for rhythmic excitement and for promoting the instrument's expressive power, and he responded by composing what is amongst the twentieth-century's finest music for solo harpsichord: idiomatic, richly characterised and deeply satisfying as well as being creatively challenging for the performer.
