American Piano Sonatas - Compact Disc

Piano Sonatas by Howard Hanson, William Schirmer, and Carlisle Floyd.

Hanson's Piano Sonata in A minor, Op. 11, was long believed to exist only as an incomplete manuscript. But when a completed, revised version appeared in 2005, the work was published by Carl Fischer (in 2011). This never-before-heard work in its entirety is featured on this new disc.

William Schirmer served on the faculty of Jacksonville University in Florida for 30 years during which time he turned out a number of professional teachers and composers, among them Bill Boston, Tony Steve, and Andrew Chopra. His seventeenth piano sonata is a lyrical masterpiece of conservative language and form.

Carlisle Floyd is universally considered to be the Father of American opera. His early Piano Sonata was composed in 1956 and given a premiere performance at Carnegie Hall in 1957 by pianist Rudolf Firkusny. Since then the work inexplicably lapsed into obscurity. A big, dramatic, lyric work, the Piano Sonata is a virtuoso showpiece of orchestral and operatic size.
