Five Preludes op. 7 image
Reginald Claude McMahon King was born in Hampstead, London in 1904. He came from a musical family, and his father, Conrad King, was a singing teacher and composer of ballads. Reginald showed an early interest in music and started composing piano pieces at the age of seven. He studied at the Blackheath Conservatoire from 1918 to 1920, and then entered the Royal Academy where he studied piano with Charles Reddie and composition with Harry Farjeon. His Piano Concerto in F minor gained him the McFarren Scholarship in 1921. In 1936 he was elected Fellow of the Royal Academy of Music. These Five Preludes date from 1925 and were originally published by Joseph Williams Limited, who had published his four preludes op. 5. in 1923. In later years, the composer provided an alternative ending for the fourth prelude in the current set, included in this new edition as Prelude IVa.
