An Introduction To The Piano
This recording presents performances of some of the best piano music available for beginners. Christopher Northam’s recital covers three centuries, from Byrd to Debussy, and is designed to introduce learners of any age to piano music that will be both satisfying and accessible to their developing talents. It is also certain to please a wider musical audience, not least because many of the pieces are difficult to find on other recordings. The selection mixes well-known pieces (Bach’s Minuet in G, Beethoven’s Für Elise) with unjustly neglected gems (Pachulski’s Prelude in C minor, and two delightful pieces by Alkan).
