E. J. Moeran was born on 31 December 1894 and died on 1 December 1950. He was a pupil of John Ireland and his friends included Peter Warlock and Arnold Bax. Between 1918 and 1933 he wrote 18 piano pieces, many of them being influenced by the landscapes of Norfolk and Ireland which he loved. This CD - the first integral collection of his piano music - was recorded in October 1994 as a centenary tribute.

Reviews
Eric Parkin... is an ideal exponent of Moeran... for the music is always beautifully shaped and phrased. Recommended.
BBC Music Magazine

This superbly presented disc is a most welcome addition to The Gramophone Classical Catalogue...  Eric Parkin plays the repertoire with authority and affection and the piano sound is very natural. Strongly recommended.
