Peformed by Joseph Havlat piano, David Watkin conductor.
Steve Law’s beautiful and memorable new Piano Concerto is available to buy on digital platforms and CD.
It is included in Symphonic Chronicles Vol.1 https://www.navonarecords.com/catalog/nv6519/ on the Navona label (distributed by Naxos) which features works by celebrated living composers recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra and Royal Scottish National Orchestra.
Steve Law has a gift for melody that is rare in contemporary music. Steve’s new piano concerto is a fabulous crossover work with more memorable tunes and broader appeal than other recent piano concerti. With brilliant and sensitive playing from the gifted young Australian pianist Joseph Havlat and expressive playing from the RSNO conducted by David Watkin, the recording was made with Grammy Award winning producer Brad Michel.
This is a new popular piano concerto for the repertoire. It is immediately enjoyable and uplifting, reflecting pop, jazz and minimalist influences with intelligence and substance.
It is a journey of sustained inspiration in lyricism and rhythm – from romanticism to fear, reflection and joy – with the feel good ‘big tune’ and exciting conclusion of the last movement.
It has everything listeners who love concertos by Gershwin, Prokofiev or Ravel can immediately relate to and enjoy.

‘TO VANGELIS’ (1943-2022) – a musical tribute by Steve Law
Steve’s beautiful musical tribute to the composer Vangelis, who sadly passed away in 2022.
Vangelis was a true pioneer who created new, beautiful and haunting electronic soundscapes. I am sure many composers today can feel his influence. It is a great regret that I never got to meet him and thank him for his music – from one composer to another.
The chorus is adapted from a song I wrote back in 2000. While writing the middle section to its climax, I felt I was expressing feelings and memories of my father Keith who passed away in 2019. So I would like to dedicate this piece to his memory too.
For those who know Vangelis’ music you will hear references to his scores to Blade Runner, Antarctica, To the Unknown Man and more in this tribute.
Performed by Gareth Brynmor John (baritone) with Steve Law (piano)
