Notes and Editorial Reviews

[This CD] include(s) this supercharged but immaculate recording of Copland's Piano Sonata, Bernstein's Sonata for Clarinet and Piano (with the very fine Eugene Zoro, clarinet) and the Sonata No. 1 of Brian Pearson in its first recording... These are not works you encounter every day, and it's well worth going out of your way to hear such good performances.

-- Melinda Bargreen, Seattle Times

...Like many admirers of Copland I've often come away with the feeling that he wasn't all on when he penned his only Piano Sonata... This new disc with Judith Cohen...puts a light on the matter. At last! The music is splendid... I would count this disc as a must for any fan of American music... I love
Read more the interplay between Cohen and Zoro [in the Bernstein]... The [Pearson] Nocturnes are haunting and spare and Cohen proves herself a worthy interpreter.
