Pianist Euan Stevenson releases album inspired by his hometown

Pianist Euan Stevenson’s Earthtones Trio releases Sound Tracks, a digital album of Stevenson’s commission for Chamber Music Scotland and Classic Music Live Scotland, on May 22.


The Falkirk-born, Surrey-based pianist, who also co-leads the jazz group New Focus, is hoping the album will encourage more organisations to commission local composers to write music inspired by their hometowns. “It gives audiences a fillip also to hear new music that they can relate to,” he says.


Earthtones Trio features RSNO principal flautist Katherine Bryan and cellist Betsy Taylor alongside Stevenson on piano and is augmented by BBC Big Band drummer Tom Gordon on percussion for Sound Tracks.


A suite of nine contemporary classical music pieces Sound Tracks was inspired by the people, places and landmarks of Falkirk and themes include home, adventure, conflict, and nostalgia. The album is available from iOcco Classical.
