WILLIAM CRIGHTON ANNOUNCES EAST COAST TOUR & 7-INCH VINYL RELEASE
The 7-CD boxset ‘A Concerto Collection’, featuring performances by Australian pianist Roger Woodward and released on ABC Classics in November 2014, has received a five star review in the British newspaper The Independent:
“The extraordinary range and sensitivity of pianist Roger Woodward is highlighted on this seven-CD set. Intense and scholarly but never desiccated, his interpretations are always engaged, whether it's the emotionally precise Adagio of Bach’s Keyboard Concerto in D minor, or the modernist whirl of Schoenberg’s Piano Concerto, Op 42. Among the highlights are Chopin’s Piano Concerto No.1 and Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No 4. Equally absorbing are works by Australian composers, Barry Conyngham’s exacting Southern Cross and Larry Sitsky’s The 22 Paths of the Tarot, by turns mysterious, theatrical and forbidding - all epithets applicable to the monumental interpretation of Xenakis’s Kraanerg.”
