27. Stevenson: Lament for a Blind Harper (arr. R. Stevenson for piano)

This second album of piano music by the Scottish composer Ronald Stevenson (1928–2015) focuses on several strands of his irrepressible musical personality.

He was deeply engaged with the folk traditions of Scotland and with Scottish cultural history, and this album contains some exquisitely beautiful realisations of Celtic harp music.

He enjoyed creative friendships with other musicians: the evocative, sonorous Hebridean Seascape reworks music by Frank Merrick, and Lament for a Blind Harper transcribes (for left hand) a moving harp piece by his own daughter, Savourna Stevenson.

He was concerned that music for young pianists should be rewarding, and Three Scots Fairy Tales were written to challenge young players.

The critics loved Volume One, which was released in 2015: American Record Guide reported ‘Gorgeous Steinway, strong and rich bass, clear treble—absolutely everything I could want in a piano, and Guild is a fantastic advocate for this almost unknown music. I can’t wait for Volume 2’, and Fanfare exclaimed: ‘Great joy! […] A welcome from all angles with open arms’.
