Exquisite music for piano by Joseph Fennimore.

Pianist Jeffrey Middleton, a champion of Joseph Fennimore's music, received his DMA from Yale. His career has included chamber music, vocal coaching and accompanying, solo performances and teaching. Of the music, Phillip Kennicott notes: "Fennimore's insistence on his right to work within a tradition, even if out of fashion, was pioneering. But his compositional style has undergone continual metamorphosis, and today the percussive aspects of the piano are more integral to his music."

Review:
"...a collection of recent piano works that deserve to be heard by anyone who loves the instrument...a major achievement, entertaining, challenging and proof of continued vitality in both the composer and the possibilities of the instrument." (Gramophone)

"An eloquent pianist himself, Fennimore...writes with unassuming skill and directness for his instrument. But these mostly recent works...also open up magic gardens of sound and haunting beauties. ...Jeffrey MIddleton plays with the dedication and sensitivity most composers can only pray for." (Dallas News)

"I think anyone interested in sophisticated music for piano would like this release very much. I certainly did." (American Record Guide)
