American Romantics

Peter Kairoff (piano), Sarah Johnson (violin)

Catalog #: TROY0150
Release Date: February 1, 1995
Format: Digital

One of the major commitments of Albany Records is to the music of America. Within this field one of our very specialized areas of interest is unknown music from our country's Romantic Era. This new recording of music by Arthur Foote (1853-1937) and Amy Beach (1867-1944) is a perfect example of what we are all about; two fine young American performers playing music which is so very deserving of being heard, especially by larger audiences. Both Foote and Beach have composed music that is very well written and immediately appealing. Violinist Sarah Johnson also appears on Albany Records performing Robert Ward's Violin Concerto with the Winston-Salem Symphony (see TROY126).

  • "This is not the kind of playing that can safely be recommended to everyone, but my hat is off to Sarah Johnson; I am delighted to have heard her disc, and I wish the top professional violinists had her passion and feeling for the music they play."
