  1. Hi Nick, Did you enjoy the two links I sent you via email?

    Two articles appeared on my musical radar recently: female composers and black composers (male and female). I wondered if you had any comments or recommendations. Forgive me if you’ve included, say, Dame Ethel’s ‘The Wreckers’ in the past when I wasn’t tuned in! I used to play some pieces by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor many years ago. I believe his daughter became a composer-conductor of some note.

    Best wishes.

    1. Hi Andrew, so sorry not to come back to you earlier on this. I’ve only listened to the Thalberg so far. Thank you for sending it – there is lots of Chopin in it, certainly, but also some Mendelssohn and even Saint-Saëns. I definitely liked it on first hearing, but I wonder whether I’d get weary of it? I’m no musicologist, as you know,, but I didn’t detect a huge amount of development and in that respect it reminded me a little of Litolff – whose one-hit-wonder drives me nuts!
      Immediate answers to your other question – Florence Price, Who fulfils both criteria, Frank Wilson and STC, as you have already mentioned.
      And then, of course, Vanni Mendelssohn and Clara Schumann, two highly gifted composers and pianists.
      I look forward to listening to the MM piano Concerto and will come back to you on that!

      1. Many thanks, Nick. I did rather think (shame on me!) that the Thalberg was ever so slightly derivative. Pleasant music, but nothing new. Litolff I discovered, via my friend, in my late 20s, together with Scharwenka. I’ve not listened to either for a couple of decades!

        Best wishes.
