Welcome to the website of David Stanhope!
News January 2019

The recording of the solo piano part of Andrew Ford's concerto Imaginings went well (I think), and has been matched with the orchestral draft. The piano sound needs treatment (rather dead at the moment compared with the orchestra), so I hope producer Christo Curtis will see and hear to that. Then I will risk playing a draft to the composer.

An unexpected development from getting my fingers back in shape has been the desire for continued practice on my part! The Chopin and Chopin-Godowsky Studies Opus 25 may eventuate, who knows? Perhaps if I have the stamina for the "Winter Wind" one...watch this space.


The Bach-Busoni transcription on my youtube channel continues to get favorable and generous comments - thank you! Nice to be appreciated.
