Notes & Reviews:

David Holzman surely stands among the greatest living exponents of 20-century American Music. The 58 year old New York pianist's last CD (Music of Wolpe) was Grammy nominated, won the 2003 Indie Award for "Best Classical CD of the Year", and won a Deems Taylor award. This new disc continues along that same intensely virtuosic path, with heroic readings of seminal works of Roger Sessions (1896-1985) and Ralph Shapey (1921-2002). These performances simply must be heard to be believed!
