To My Star

by Rosemary Tuck

Composer, virtuoso, adventurer and heart-breaker, William Vincent Wallace was a C19th phenomenon - an international star who's free-flowing melodies and brilliantly virtuosic writing combined in an Irish romanticism also reminiscent of Chopin and Liszt.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"...the Heart which you first inspired remained the same, and will ever be so, if it's natural impulses are not changed..." wrote William Vincent Wallace London 28th January 1859. Representing the height of Irish romanticism, Wallace, like Liszt, was directly inspired by hearing Paganini perform. His music embraces the best of both worlds.

“Rosemary Tuck's championship of Vincent Wallace's thoroughly entertaining piano music, packed with ingenious invention and lots of good tunes, wrapped up in a constant variety of colourful harmony and imaginative keyboard writing, is obviously aimed at encouraging a Wallace revival. Wallace picked up many idioms on his travels, including the rhythms and colours of gypsies and of Spain, which were such a success in 'Maritana'. These foreign influences are so well integrated in the piano music which Rosemary Tuck plays so brilliantly and lovingly. Not to be missed!' Denby Richards, Musical Opinion EDITORS CHOICE

"...the companion collection boasts even more in the way of extravagant display (witness the barnstorming antics of the 1842 grand fantasie and variations 'La Caracovienne'); indeed, one can readily visualise the famboyant Wallace wowing many a spellbound auditorium with these entertaining vehicles for his own finger-twisting virtuosity...speaks volumes for the wholly winning efforts of Australian pianist Rosemary Tuck, whose ideally deft and scintillating performances have been faithfully captured by Phil Rowlands..." Andrew Achenbach, Gramophone

Recorded in 2005 at St Silas Church, Kentish Town
