In this week’s playlist, we feature the works of Eleanor Alberga. Born in 1949 in Kingston, Jamaica, Alberga decided at the age of five to be a concert pianist. Five years later, she was composing works for the piano. She is a highly-regarded mainstream British composer with commissions from the BBC Proms and The Royal Opera, Covent Garden.
This week on CMI Streaming’s New Classical Channel, we feature a couple of pieces by English composer and conductor Joseph Horovitz. Born in Austria in 1926, Horovitz family fled to England in 1938 to escape the Nazis.
