"The Music of Frederick Laurence” is an intriguing new album featuring many previously unknown works from the British composer Frederick Laurence, performed by two of the country’s best-known musicians, violinist Jack Liebeck and pianist Anna Tilbrook. This unique collection exhibits Laurence's avant-garde writing for solo piano, as well as violin and piano duo, promising a rediscovery of his distinct contributions to early 20th-century British music. The album showcases Laurence's transformative journey, marked by experimental compositions and a name change in the aftermath of World War I. The composer’s rich early works include the unconventional Interludes for Pianoforte, Op.11, and the daring Phases, Op.18. Noteworthy is the Sonata for Violin and Piano, a work reflecting Laurence's peak creative period. As a prominent figure in film accompaniment history, Laurence's legacy unfolds through his original score for the Russian fairy tale film Morozko (1924). Violinist Jack Liebeck, renowned for collaborations with leading orchestras worldwide, and pianist Anna Tilbrook, a regular in major concert halls, celebrate a composer whose influence extends from classical stages to pioneering film scores.
