Martha Braden, piano

This recording brings together piano works from throughout the career of Ross Lee Finney (b Wells, MN, 1906; d Carmel, CA 1997). A prolific composer in all musical media, Mr. Finney has written orchestral music that includes four symphonies, concertos for violin, piano and alto saxophone, choral works including a trilogy Still Are the New Worlds, The Marty’s Elegy, and Earthrise, works for chamber ensembles and dozens of works for piano, including popular pieces for children. He says of his work, “I have always felt that art could not be understood from a single viewpoint; that it unfolded, one might say, on two levels, one highly technical and concerned with minutiae, the other emotional and concerned with the grand design.”


This title, originally issued on the CRI label, is now available for order from New World Records as an on-demand CD (CD-R). It can also be downloaded in MP3/320, FLAC and/or WAV format(s).
