Notes and Editorial Reviews

Annotator Allan Kozinn writes: "if audiences listened as devotedly to contemporary piano scores as to the great works of the 17th through early 20th centuries, the two works Martin Perry plays here would be regarded as landmarks of the piano’s huge repertory. No doubt one day they will be – Paul Hindemith’s Ludus Tonalis has a constituency among discerning pianists and listeners; for many, Hugo Weisgall’s Sonata for Piano remains an undiscovered gem, something that may change once listeners who think of Weisgall as principally a vocal composer realize that his instrumental music is as just as dazzling." Martin Perry delivers intensely musical, brilliantly realized readings of these two important twentieth century keyboard Read more masterworks.


REVIEW: Perry plays the Weisgall, a profound but rarely heard work from the composer's 70th year, masterfully.
