Description
American composer Charles Tomlinson Griffes died at the age of 35, leaving behind orchestral works, a group of songs, and solo piano pieces. Several of the latter premiered in this collection, including A Winter Landscape, Prelude in B Minor, and a transcription of the Barcarolle from Jacques Offenbach's Tales of Hoffmann. The opening piece is his bracing Sonata of 1919, followed by a Rhapsody in B Minor, a Wagnerian De Profundis, and two sets of exquisitely rendered impressionistic works: Three Tone Pictures ("The Lake at Evening," "The Vale of Dreams," and "The Night Winds") and Roman Sketches ("The White Peacock," "Fountains of Acqua Paola," "Nightfall," and "Clouds").

"The piano sonata … broke the Brahmsian mould and left behind no shred of Macdowell or Liszt. It is intoxicatingly revolutionary…. [Michael] Lewin plays to this avant-garde tendency and is not tempted to soften the impact. Remarkable are the clanging landslides of notes in the third movement oddly mixing Rachmaninov, John Cage and Nancarrow…. A fine collection and well worth acquiring at any price, let alone bargain price."—Musicweb International
