Notes and Editorial Reviews

Currents, brings together six impeccably performed and recorded new American piano works. Almost all written specifically with pianist Michael Mizrahi’s singular sound and approach in mind, and featuring composers Sarah Kirkland Snider, Troy Herion, Mark Dancigers, Asha Srinivasan, Missy Mazzoli, and Patrick Burke. As with Mizrahi’s widely acclaimed New Amsterdam debut, The Bright Motion (2012), Currents showcases the continued vitality of the piano’s exceptionally rich musical heritage while exploring its capability to express the most contemporary of musical ideas. The result is a significant addition to the solo piano repertory of the 21st century that, as the title suggests, embodies movement forward - Read more building on the great piano works of the past while propelling the solo piano repertoire ahead in a new and energized direction. - New Amsterdam Read less
