Neither Gurney’s nor Ferguson’s piano works are currently represented in the gramophone catalogue, apart from a 1942 recording of the Ferguson Piano Sonata by Myra Hess. We are particularly pleased therefore, to have this new release in the SOMM catalogue with Mark Bebbington, whose debut disc featuring the major piano works of Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco on “New Horizons” SOMMCD 032 (see earlier in catalogue) has had unprecedented success.

Mark Bebbington is a leading British pianist, achieving international recognition for his adventurous programming and for his championing of the music of our time.
