Alex Salmond is well known in Scotland, the UK and beyond as the leader of the Scottish National Party and Scotland's First Minister, but relatively little is understood about Salmond as a human being, what makes him a Nationalist, what shaped his political views, and what sort of country he believes an independent Scotland can be. In this first biography, with which close colleagues and friends have co-operated, the acclaimed political biographer David Torrance turns his attention to perhaps one of the most capable and interesting politicians Scotland has produced in the last few decades.

Despite extraordinary international recognition Myra Hess never assumed the role of famed cosmopolitan soloist. Rather, she remained the archetypal English lady abroad. Even so she conquered America from the first, an appearance at New York in 1922 with a program that included Scarlatti and Bach, Franck and Schumann, Debussy and Chopin. Myra Hess was preparing for an extensive tour of America when war was declared in 1939. Refusing to leave the UK, she soon became involved in a cause which eventually made her name a legend, the war-time National Gallery concerts. Chamber music was, quite simply, a life-long love that inexorably grew to a passion and which perhaps, reached its climax with appearances at Casals' Prades Festival in 1951-1952."

There’s a strongly bipartite element to the programming here. Popper’s easy-going, lyrical Romantic charm is pitted against Piatigorsky’s wizardly virtuosity in his Variations on a Paganini Theme. Both were executants of high renown and Popper was the better known as an executant-composer. But Piatogorsky’s transcriptions, arrangements and original works – as here - are well deserving of perpetuation, as this disc amply demonstrates.
