Endless Song

by Margaret Fingerhut

Buy the CD on the Chandos website or the digital album on iTunes.

Margaret Fingerhut's new release on Chandos is a collection of encore-like pieces that explore the way in which composers have transformed the piano, in essence a percussion instrument, into one that can sing. The album takes its title from John Metcalf's beautiful piece "Endless Song" and is a personal collection of some of her favourite pieces by favourite composers, including Mendelssohn, Liszt song transcriptions, Josef Suk, Poulenc, Gershwin, Albeniz, Carlos Guastavino and Rachmaninoff.

ALBUM OF THE WEEK: "Endless Song" was given its premiere play on John Suchet's programme on Classic FM from 26th to 30th May.  A different track was played each weekday morning. 

Margaret's album was also chosen by David Mellor as his "Pick of the Week" on his New Releases programme on Classic FM on Saturday 14th June.
