Notes & Reviews:

Jeanne Golan gives us performances of music by American composer-pianists who understand and write beautifully for the piano, making a collection that ranges from the virtuosic to the introspective. With American Hand Stands, pianist Jeanne Golan continues her active involvement in the fostering of works by new composers and discovering relatively unknown musical treasures.

”This disc confirms my impression that Golan, aside from being a formidable pianist, is one with a deep intellectual and aesthetic curiosity. She is an imaginative and tasteful curator of the programs she presents. The idea of this recital is to present works by American composer-pianistsit’s an innovative feat, and I’m glad we have this in the discography now (I’ve checked and it’s the only recording), at the very least for its historical importance. And let me assure all that Golan and Oldfather surmount the challenges of this work with aplomb (and stamina!).”-Fanfare
