Frank Merrick was a tireless champion of the causes in which he believed and these causes extended well beyond the field of music. Although his name is associated with the piano music of a range of composers as diverse as John Field and Prokofiev, Schubert and Arnold Bax, he also campaigned with the suffragettes, was imprisoned during the First World War as a Conscientious Objector and over many years advocated the use of the universal language Esperanto. Between 1898-1901 Frank Merrick studied in Vienna with the celebrated teacher, Theodor Leschetizky, and he made his London debut aged 16 in 1903. This release features a selection of the best performances transferred from the ‘Frank Merrick Society’ and the ‘Rare Recorded Edition’ LPs of the 1960s.

NOTE ON THE LP SOURCES Beginning in 1961 (at the age of 75) and extending through to the early 1970s Frank Merrick recorded important works from his recital repertoire, and much else besides. These recordings, although fully intended for publication, and reviewed in various periodicals at the time of release, were nonetheless a largely private venture. The recollection of Frank Merrick’s family is that less than 100 copies of each LP was produced. During the initial phase of this project Nimbus was fortunate to be able to find all of the FMS titles and all but two of the RRE titles. This selection presents the strongest performances and the best recorded sound available to us.
