For many reasons, this can be claimed as a very special recording. Grandfather and Granddaughter, teacher and pupil, the composer and the performer – all these forms are embraced and the threads connecting them, explored.
As a virtuoso pianist and composer of international stature, Ronald Stevenson's place in the annals is assured. With his life long passion for Scotland's traditional music forms, Ronald has arranged many pieces including all of those on this recording.
With the broad sweep of his interests and expertise he is an accomplished scholar and an inspiring teacher, borne testament to through his musical children, and his granddaughter, Anna-Wendy Stevenson.
A professional musician in her own right, the connection between Scottish and classical has been sustained with her proficiency in both idioms. An orchestral leader and internationally traveled ‘fiddler', she has recently added a composing dimension with her forthcoming “new voices” commission for Celtic Connections Festival.
Together then in harmony, two musicians at different stages of their lives and careers, connected over two generations with an appreciation of music lovingly handed down, playing music made their own, this is indeed a unique recording.
