You are welcome to add to the collection of articles on this website, or comment on anything herein. This page is open to everyone who would like to contribute. It is moderated by Paul Vincent, a grandson of Thomas Dunhill, and all posts should be publicly available within 48 hours (except in exceptional circumstances).

Shortly a number of photographs of Thomas Dunhill will be added to the website, and by the end of the year a number of his diaries should be available as pdf’s, precis-ed from the diaries held at the Royal College of Music. A small charge will be made for each Diary Year, to help defray the costs of researching them! TFD wrote a diary from 1893 until 1946 in which he recorded very many musical events in London and well as progress in his own compositions, his daily routines of teaching and meetings with musical friends – and occasional romantic episodes.

    Delighted to find this site. I’m currently enjoying playing Op 31, garden of melodies, particularly the valse LYRIQUE. tHE MELODIES ARE STRIKING AND THE DETAILS OF THE HARMONIES ARE A DELIGHT. i LOVE THE REPEATED NOTES AND THE EXPRESSIVENESS CONTAINED IN THEM. HAVING A SUITE OF CONTRASTING PIECES MAKES IT SUCH A SATISFYING PROJECT TO LEARN. I HAVE RECOMMENDED DUNHILL TO A FRIEND WHO TEACHES THE PIANO AND SHE HOPES TO EXPLORE MORE AS THE PIECES ARE ATTRACTIVE TO ADULTS AND YOUNGSTERS. PLEASE ARE YOU ABLE TO RECOMMEND ANY OF THE OTHER SUITES AS BEING OF ABOUT GRADE 2 OR 3 STANDARD AND WELL-SUITED TO SMALLER HANDS? i DOWNLOADED A STORY BOOK FROM THIS SITE AND HAVE FOUND MORE WORKS AVAILABLE AT http://www.prestoclassical.co.uk/sm/publisher%7C520~category1%7CPiano+Solo~composer%7C439-b BUT THIS DOES NOT SHOW THE LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY, NOR WHICH PIECES APPEAR IN WHICH SUITES. aNY ADVICE WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED.

    My father, John Burton-Page, was a horn student at the RCM for a term in 1939 before he was called up. His tutor was Frank Probyn, and Dad was quite proud of the fact that he’d introduced his teacher to TFD – and that CORNUCOPIA was the result! I wonder if the diaries corroborate this?!
