Sir William Sterndale Bennett was an English composer, pianist, conductor and music educator. He had a significant influence on English music in the 19th century, not solely as a composer but also as a teacher and as an important figure in London concert life. In recent years, appreciation of Bennett’s compositions has been rekindled and a number of his works have been recorded. The Hyperion label continues its exploration of rarely heard Romantic piano concertos with this album of Bennett’s first three concertos.
