Including songs and 'The Maid of Orleans' sonata
presented and performed by David Owen Norris
on a Broadwood Grand Piano of 1828,
with Mark Wilde, tenor.
William Sterndale Bennett, friend of Mendelssohn, and darling of the Leipzig public, was one of the first composers to publish his songs in both English & German: he delayed their publication until the translations were perfected. The Sonata, adorned with bilingual quotes from Schiller's play, is the major work of Bennett's last years.
