Rêverie d'amour York Bowen; Joop Celis. This the second volume in a three album series from celebrated Dutch pianist Joop Celis dedicated to the works of York Bowen. The composer, described as "the English Rachmaninov", was a prodigious pianist whose deep and richly expressive music is known to only a few seekers of elusive musical gems. Bowen composed over 160 works which show a blend of Romanticism and strong individuality, however he was more responsive to two other national schools: the Russian and the French. It is this fusion of different styles which makes Bowen’s own very individual sound world so remarkable

York Bowen was a British pianist/composer of the early and middle twentieth century - a fairly uncommon combination in that time and place. The otherwise fine booklet notes make the claim that he was the first pianist to record Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4, which may well be true but is a startling enough claim to require specifics that are not provided. He was sometimes called "the English Rachmaninoff," and his piano music is full of technical minefields.

York Bowen is one of those twentieth century composers whose music fell by the wayside because it seemed old-fashioned and out of step with contemporary works. The piano works on this disc - the Sonata No. 6, the Preludes, Op. 102, and the Rêverie - are rich, dramatic, virtuosic, generally tonal works that are descended from the works of such composers as Debussy, Rachmaninov, and Scriabin.

This album has an average beat per minute of 82 BPM (slowest/fastest tempos: 61/108 BPM). See its BPM profile at the bottom of the page.
