The man who taught John Williams his Star Wars…….
It’s a little known fact, but Mario Castelnuovo- Tedesco taught not only John Williams, but also Henri Mancini and Andre Previn…..not surprising then, that we think of CT more in terms of his pupils than of his own achievements. But listen to his piano music and you’ll hear a wonderfully inventive and original mind at work………
Piano Music by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco is available from 28th July:
“Mark Bebbington plays these works with just the right sense of unfathomable antiquity and grandeur. He is truly a remarkable pianist.”
Ivan Hewitt, The Times
