Musical Pointers

Recorded in 2001, this passed me by and indeed I have nothing of “Olympia”. Handsomely re-released by Divine Arts a decade on in the full flood of the Gal revival, it is sheer joy, now that we’re no longer afraid of music that isn’t completely “up to date”.

Goldstone & Clemmow supply ideal programme notes, quoting Gal’s reminder of the joys of piano duet playing, a habit “sadly diminished”.

Delightful music whose time has come; put it high on your piano recordings to buy list.
