Album For The Young features 64 classic Piano pieces inspired by the spirit of childhood.
From Johannes Brahms’ unashamedly lyrical Wiegenlied through the more cerebral approach of Schumann’s album Für die Jugend and the works of contemporary composers such as Lutoslawksi and Richard Rodney Bennett, the music contained in this collection offers many contrasting approaches to the idea of music for the young.
Great composers down the ages have been consistently attracted to writing albums about or for the young. Some pieces are suitable for children to play and some are drawn from the nostalgic memory of childhood innocence. Here is a unique collection to treasure, reflecting the variety of both their emotional approaches and the richness of their creative responses.
