The Unthanks - Lines - Part Three: Emily Bronte - Vinyl 10"

Regular price £15.00 Sale

This record is a collection of Emily Brontë poems, turned into songs by Yorkshire-born Unthanks pianist and composer Adrian McNally. It was performed and arranged with Rachel and Becky Unthank and commissioned by the Brontë Society to mark her 200th Birthday. The songs were written and recorded on Emily's own piano in the Parsonage in Haworth where she lived and worked.
Emily's piano was lovingly and expertly restored by Ken Forrest. It's a rare example of a 5 octave cabinet piano probably made in London between 1810 and 1815. It must be played very gently, and has many creeks and idiosyncrasies, many of which are present on these recordings.
