Product notities

As reviewed in the Society for American Music: The most important and impressive disc of this review is Hie Up the Mountain, music by composers between the ages of about thirty and fifty, now just reaching the height of their creative powers. Not for them the hard edges of mid-century modernism, yet there is considerable craft in the pieces, which leave the listener satisfied, and with a good deal to think about. Pianist Jonathan Faiman's own Piano Sonata shows a ready technique, and has some interesting passages. His collection of miniatures, Five Vaults, is quite diverse and mostly delightful. The opening movement, 'First,' has an irresistible rhythmic figure that returns in two later movements. 'Poise' and 'Float' are especially charming. David Macdonald's Suite for Piano, inspired by French Baroque harpsichord music, varies greatly in mood and style over it's three movements. The lovely 'Menuet' hints somewhat of Ravel, and there are carillon-like sonorities reminiscent of Federico Mompou, yet Macdonald's music has a beauty, and a toughness, all it's own. Ken Sullivan's Maracaibo is predictably tropical and lush, but has some surprises and memorable moments. Eric Samuelson's five-movement Sonata for Piano opens with a tough Allegro movement that hints at some of the many earlier masters this very good composer acknowledges. Two fine waltzes frame a magnificent chorale, entitled 'Sanctus,' the centerpiece of this excellent sonata. The last movement, 'Lost Shadow Rag' (a reference to Peter Pan?), is a study in rhythmic displacement, reminiscent of William Bolcom's piano rages, but with a wayward quality that suggests Satie. David Shohl's Dynamophone -- tough, muscular piano music, and genuinely exciting -- puts Faiman's considerable technique to the test. Derek Bermel's Three Funk Studies makes a lively impression, particularly the last, which is funky indeed. His Dodecaphunk, described by the composer as a twelve-tone jazz fugue, is jaunty and never sounds academic. Ricky Ian Gordon, the best known of these young masters, is represented by two wonderful pieces, the intense, moody Winter Again and the brief, creamy Desire Rag. This Musicians Showcase disc is a major contribution to the available body of music by the generation now making it's mark in American music. If you only afford one of these five discs reviewed here, then Hie Up the Mountain is unquestionably the one to get.
