Lord Berners was essentially self-taught as a composer, profiting from experiences gained while travelling in Europe, and receiving advice and encouragement from Stravinsky. Atone of wit and humor is established in his masterful settings of Heine in the Lieder Album, and his subtle touch with the French language is well represented in the Trois Chansons. The Fragments psychologiques is a piano cycle that is both virtuosic and expressive. Frommock parlor-song parodies to a poem about a dejected goldfish, Lord Berners' keen sense of observation and ironic view on life is here in abundance.
