New Classics

“This impressive CD features all the major solo piano works by one of America’s most revered composers, including his Passacaglia, Piano Variations, the hauntingly beautiful Piano Sonata and an ambitious Piano Fantasy. The pianist is Raymond Clarke, whose recordings so far have specialised in twentieth-century music, and on this new disc the four Copland works are played in chronological order. The performances throughout are exemplary, each note being played with great precision and delicacy”
