A major international release with a stunning pianist! The Anthology of American Piano Music is designed to show the stylistic breadth, high musical quality and great originality of the best American piano works. The series contains underrated, neglected or forgotten masterworks of the American literature for solo piano from the 18th to the 21st century that have been selected primarily for their musical worth. The compositions are assembled in a series of themed CDs, their programmes being connected by one common theme or overarching idea. Vol.1, “American First Sonatas”, comprises the first piano sonatas by four American composers from different periods, including the very first sonata ever composed in North America.

“This is an exciting new release that promises to expand into a collection of American musical masterpieces, albeit at a slow rate. It is essential listening for all who consider the piano as their favourite instrument and who regard the piano sonata as one of the most important and sophisticated forms.” – MusicWeb International
