A fascinating look at three American composers by pianist Richard Zimdars.

Following up on his critically acclaimed 2009 recording of Ives, Copland, Cowell and Rudhyar for Albany Records, pianist Richard Zimdars offers works by three American composers-- Vincent Persichetti and two of his composition students at the Juilliard School of Music-- Marga Richter and Jacob Druckman. The pieces from 1952-1955 in large forms of sonata and variation offer a focused look at the early work of three important American composers and include four world premiere recordings. Richard Zimdars has performed and broadcast throughout the U.S. and Europe. He is professor of piano at the University of Georgia and has given master classes at the Royal Academy of Music, the Royal Irish Academy of Music and the Hochschule für Musik in Stuttgart and was artistic director of the 2011 American Liszt Society Festival.

Review:
"Zimdars deserves high praise for this convincing performances...and his profound expression is supported by his clear understanding of structure.. Zimdars weaves sonorities into witty passagework, conveying ferocity and reticence with equal confidence." (Clavier Companion)
