Description
Drawing on music from North and South America, Busoni International Piano Competition winner Joel Fan dazzles in major sonatas by Alberto Ginastera and Samuel Barber, along with delightfully off-the-beaten-path works by Louis Moreau Gottschalk (Suis-moi!), Astor Piazzolla (Flora's Gae: Milonga), and Heitor Villa-Lobos (Chôros No. 5). Other highlights include the world premiere of William Bolcom's suite Nine New Bagatelles, along with Amy Beach's Fireflies, op. 15, no. 4, and African-American composer Margaret Bonds's Troubled Water.

"Fan offers nine stunningly brilliant renditions drawn from a wide range of styles and sources.... Capping it all off is an arresting interpretation of Samuel Barber's fearsome 1949 Piano Sonata. Wow. [Artistic Quality: 10, Sound Quality 10]".—Toronto Star

"He is an exceptionally fluent, lyrical player with a fine sense of mystery in the slow movements of the piano sonatas.... A program that alternates very gracefully between simpler and more complicated pieces; the music almost seems to breathe and ruminate on the nature of Americanness.... With fine engineering, this is a masterful performance."—All Music Guide

"His playing was the picture of textural clarity.... The program's highlight was the … Bagatelles, a set of aphoristic, vividly drawn character pieces.... Mr. Fan gave it an agile reading, with delicacy and heft carefully balanced."—NYTimes (re the CD release recital)
