Notes & Reviews:

Brian Banks' music projects a wide array of influences, images & synthesized genres. Deeply evocative and affecting, his musical language incorporates several different kinds of pentatonic scales, modal fugues, the blues, dramatic dissonant passages in complex meters, and profoundly lyrical writing. This release contains piano compositions written since 1999, including 3 piano sonatas, and two sets of preludes. A native of the Pacific Northwest, Mr. Banks now lives in Mexico, where he teaches composition at the Universidad de las Americas, Puebla.
