The scintillating virtuoso pianist and composer William Vincent Wallace wrote a sheaf of memorable compositions for his instrument. He met the huge demand for sheet music by producing a series of waltzes, nocturnes, mazurkas, barcarolles, and other works dazzling in their variety, invention, wit, humour and charm. Their tone ranges from Latin American to Spanish and from seascape to melancholy reflection. Widely admired exponents of Wallace’s music, Rosemary Tuck and Richard Bonynge are joined by the Tait Chamber Orchestra for the brilliant Grande Fantaisie La Cracovienne.

Review By Stanislaw Lublinski,Muzyka 21 [Polish Music Magazine],March 2013


Review By Andrew Lamb,Gramophone,December 2012

This latest piano collection is perhaps the best of all…The joyful, passionate Nocturne mélodique is especially winning, as is Au bord de la mer, but there’s much more to enjoy in this substantial and varied collection, which Rosemary Tuck dispatches all with admirable grace and aplomb.

Wallace’s piano compositions are of real appeal, and this generous and inexpensive collection is well worth investigating alongside Naxos’s previous issues of his Opera Fantasies and Celtic Fantasies. © 2012 Gramophone

Review By The Munster Express,November 2012

The acclaimed Australian pianist, Rosemary Tuck was in the National Concert Hall in Dublin recently to give a concert celebrating the Bicentenary of William Vincent Wallace. Waterford’s leading Wallace authority, Dr. David Grant gave a lecture as part of the event, at a lunchtime concert. Ms. Tuck played from her latest Wallace cd, Chopinesque, now available on the Naxos label.

This cd gives a wonderful flavour of the styles and influences of a composer who travelled widely in the 19th century. There are operatic gems or extracts, some Latin American , Spanish and American influences as well as a nod toward Paganini and Chopin. Hence the title Chopinesque. Richard Bonynge and the Tait Chamber orchestra contributed to a few tracks as well.
