Big Things

Posted on July 7, 2013
In just a few weeks (Aug. 12 - 16), I will begin the most important week of my musical life. I'm recording four piano sonatas by American composers Howard Hanson, Norman Dello Joio (no. 1), William Schirmer (no. 17), and Carlisle Floyd. I am so excited by this project and what it will mean to me personally when it's completed. All four works are masterpieces penned by their respective composers - and I have some connection to each one of the composers. And if you don't know the Piano Sonata by Carlisle Floyd, you are in for one hell of a shock! It's simply one of the greatest piano sonatas of the 20th century! Hope you'll check back here for more updates!
