Bargemusic: Masterworks Series

Masterworks Series

In Celebration of St. Patrick Day
In the words of Emanuel Krasovsky: “The Second violin sonata by Howard Ferguson is, I feel, a very strong piece—compact but genuinely powerful. Five Characteristic Pieces by Charles Stanford are intimate, warm and elegant—a total opposite to Ferguson; Stanford’s Irish Rhapsody is a bright and happy work. And the 2 Nocturnes by John Field—in A major and in C minor—are beautiful and poetic, not that different from Nocturnes by Chopin.”
