Little Masterpiece

image A beautiful collection featuring music in miniature by Mozart, Schubert, Grieg, Debussy, Brahms, Mendelssohn, Liszt and Beethoven – prominent figures in Roger’s acclaimed 30 year performing career.

It is often forgotten that most classical music of the 18th and 19th centuries was designed purely as popular entertainment and Roger has been a prime mover in re-establishing the popularity of this music in the 20th century. In traditions established by Dame Nellie Melba and Percy Grainger, Roger Woodward tours the country outback of Australia as well as giving recitals in major concert halls. LITTLE MASTERPIECES features many of the pieces that Roger has presented in those very recitals.
