Michael Boriskin, piano

This is an exquisitely performed and recorded collection of mid-twentieth-century American piano music featuring the brilliant pianist Michael Boriskin. Mr. Boriskin has been hailed by Andrew L. Pincus of the New York Times as a pianist “with a Midas touch for new music.” On this recording, he demonstrates his formidable technique and insight with a program featuring the crystalline three Sonatas of Harold Shapero, Gian Carlo Menotti’s highly attractive Ricercare and Toccata on a theme from “The Old Maid and the Thief,” Irving Fine’s buoyant Music for Piano, and Carl Ruggles' dramatic Evocations.
