Music For A Prince, Music By A Prince: Fourteen Pi
Format: COMPACT DISC
Williams, Jeremy Huw; Fan, Paula; Buchholz, Theodore; Carder, Jason; Reid, Edward
This unusual recording brings princely offerings of two different kinds. In 1970 Prince Charles – who had studied cello and trumpet – was presented with a leather-bound volume containing pieces written for his entertainment by the composers on the council of the Performing Right Society. These fourteen bonnes bouches are complemented by fourteen German Lieder written by Prince Charles’ great-great-great-grandfather, Prince Albert, the Prince Consort, whose style owed something to that of his good friend, Felix Mendelssohn.
