Notes & Reviews:

"What Zimdars brings to the table in addition to sheer finger fortitude is a fine sense of scholarship regarding the pieces themselves; Zimdars has presented a lecture on the motivic development within Charles Ives' First Sonata (1902-1910) and his interpretation of this gargantuan work is wonderfully clear, with an excellent first movement and strong performances of all the others... as a survey of early American modernist piano music this is very good, and Zimdars' performances are accomplished and speak well for his long contact with, and expansive study of, this music." -All Music Guide
