MAB Posted June 16, 2008 Share Posted June 16, 2008 Last week I went to a splendid lunchtime recital by Peter Wright. He finished his programme with the partita on 'Nun freut euch' by Lionel Rogg. To be honest, I was not expecting a great deal from the piece, but it turned out to be wonderful ; well crafted, a really distinct musical language (although with echoes of Hindemith) and appealing for the listener. I am looking forward to learning it myself. One reason I was (pleasantly) surprised by the piece was that the only Rogg I had heard before were his 'Deux etudes'. These are played more widely nowadays, although I am bound to say that on the one occasion I heard them performed, they made little impression on me. I would like to find out more about Lionel Rogg's compositions. Does anyone play more of his music, and can anyone recommend other good stuff to look at ?
