Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Dickinsons, who flourished from the late 1960s to the early 1990s, performed works by Copland, Carter and Thomson for the composers themselves and their performances, which are captured on this disc, including the Cage cycle, were first recordings, as is Copland’s late piano piece Night Thoughts. As such, it is an important and historic release for those interested in American music.
