Young Irish Virtuoso Pianist to make CD to fund studies
JJ McNamara is a young Irish virtuoso pianist. Although only 18 he has already made his National Concert Hall debut in Dublin. Blessed with incredible fingers, McNamara is destined to become one of the greats. A child prodigy, JJ's development has been a joy to watch - please view the video which shows JJ's progress as a pianist from aged 9 to today.
This CD recording, which will be recorded at Park House Studios in County Meath on a beautiful new Steinway piano supplied by Jeffers Pianos of Cork, is being made by JJ to help fund his studies in London with Martin Roscoe, the legendary British pianist.
Included in the recording will be the magnificent Rachmaninoff Second Piano Sonata (revised version). Also the wonderful Liszt transcription of Gounod's waltz from his opera "Faust".
In addition to his super finger work, JJ has a depth of musical understanding. This CD promises to become a "must have" in any classical CD collection.
