Fine, Menotti, Ruggles & Shapero: Piano Works
Irving Fine Music for Piano Gian Carlo Menotti Ricercare and Toccata on a theme from The Old Maid and the Thief Carl Ruggles Evocations: Four Chants for Piano Harold Shapero Sonata No. 1, Sonata No. 2, Sonata No. 3 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.
