About this release

“I write a lot for piano for two main reasons. Firstly, being a pianist allows me to be in touch with a rich and exciting repertoire. This gives me a great variety of role models in terms of vocabulary and gesture with which to formulate and ‘clothe’ the ideas which come to me and seem to need expression. Secondly, being an idealistic rather than a ‘career’ composer, I find the piano a handy vehicle for the uttering (‘Outering’) of compositional thought. That is, the inspiration goes directly into a performable medium without the salesmanship required for getting ensemble pieces played.” – John White
