About

'Panorama of American Piano Music' is a comprehensive survey of 20th century piano works, beginning with Ives’ “The Alcotts” movement from the 'Concord Sonata' (1912) through to Lou Harrison’s 'Summerfield Set' (1988). Every decade is represented with works from between those years.

Pianist Yvar Mikhashoff (1941–93) was a master at presenting marathon concerts on a single theme. The 'Panorama' was one of them, exploring the remarkable diversity of 20th century American music, from serialism to minimalism, populist to avant garde experimentalism, short works for amateur pianists to virtuoso pieces. Never before has such a survey of piano music been represented.

62 works, presented in chronological order, from composers Antheil to Zappa, written between the years 1912-88. Over 15 first recordings, including Copland, Bowles, Thomson and LaMonte Young. Many works are unpublished, some taken from manuscripts.
