Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The piano music of American composer Phillip Ramey (b. 1939) is rooted in the motoric athleticism of Prokofiev and Bartók and then seasoned with sober lyricism, spicy modernist dissonance, and a fresh approach to the grand Romantic gesture. Covering a span of half a century, this third Toccata Classics album includes the vivacious early Suite, the sparkling Toccata Giocosa, the atmospheric Slavic Rhapsody, the parodistic Burlesque-Paraphrase on a Theme of Stephen Foster, and the exotic Djebel Bani (A Saharan Meditation), concluding with the virtuosic, highly dramatic Sixth Sonata.
