About

John Alden Carpenter (1876-1951) was a descendant of the very John Alden Carpenter who arrived at Plymouth (Massachusetts) on the Mayflower. He was one of the earliest to incorporate jazz and Latin/Spanish-flavoured 'popular' music into his scores. In his day, he enjoyed a remarkable success, his music promoted by many leading conductors and orchestras.

This Dutton Epoch release features brilliant American pianist Michael Chertock and conductor Keith Lockhart, who bring verve and panache to the popular Concertino for piano and orchestra and the world premiere recording of Carpenter’s later Patterns for piano and orchestra.

Also presented here is the delightful jazz-ballet Krazy Kat and Carpenter’s Leopold Stokowski commission, the beautiful Carmel Concerto - also a world premiere recording.

Recorded at Abbey Road Studio No.1, London, October 2014.
