This recording continues our series devoted to the music of this esteemed composer.

Richard Wilson writes: "The music on this compact disc spans my entire composing career...The three short pieces for piano from my senior year in college reflect an enthusiasm for Boulez, who was teaching at Harvard that year. Quite different in style are the herbal pieces that were intended as teaching material for young piano students but are, without doubt, a bit too complex for that purpose. My propensity for technical challenge is even more evident in the solo works for bass and oboe. Chamber music has always been my preferred milieu."

"Richard Wilson is a composer who values craft, restraint, elegance, and subtlety. ...Wilson plays in three works, and he's a fabulous pianist–steely, precise, crisp. His musicianship and sensitivity are obvious." (Fanfare)
