Andrew Rangell's recital disc, "Peruvian Honeymoon", presents a wildly eclectic mixture of music from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. Ranging from the exquisite sonatas of Mozart and Haydn, through Christian Wolff's Beatles-inspired "Peruvian Honeymoon",
Read more Rangell takes the listener on a journey that consistently provides superb pianism, and abundant musical delights. Among the treats in this collection, one can sample the rarely heard music of the mid-20th century Norwegian composer, Fartein Valen, Stravinsky's droll and sinuous "Tango", and a delicious selection of Chopin Waltzes.

"Rangell’s Chopin is gentle even as it plays up dynamic contrasts...Rangell’s vigorous Haydn is, however, a joy throughout. Rangell seems to enjoy Haydn’s wit and boisterous good nature: his tendency to emphasize contrasts is beautifully employed here. The Variations by Norwegian composer Fartein Valen are, as the notes accurately tell us, concise and lyrical. This is an appealing 12-tone work that ends as quietly as it began. Rangell finishes with Stravinsky’s humorous Tango, which he plays exquisitely. Rangell’s “Peruvian Honeymoon” is a winning collection, especially valuable for its rare pieces of music and, to my ears, for its nearly ideal rendition of a wonderful Haydn sonata." - Michael Ullman, FANFARE
