Notes & Reviews:

Unlike much of his other chamber music, Alec Wilder's solo piano works are miniatures, delicately balanced, and succinct. More than half the pieces and movements are under a minute in length as Wilder chose brevity in his expression, making his musical points in concise and contrasting musical statements. Given the rich, grand repertory for solo piano, Wilder never presumed that he could add to the huge output of the grand masters. Instead, he created little gems that challenge the artistry of the performer. The music on this CD, beautifully and elegantly performed and interpreted by pianist John Noel Roberts, marks the debut recording of many of Wilder's solo piano works. They are a treat to hear. John Noel Roberts is a consummate pianist and teacher who has demonstrated his interpretive skills, technical ability and his wide-ranging repertoire in solo and concerto performances in Australia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, India, Italy, Great Britain, Canada and the United States. Formerly Artist in Residence and Head of Music at the Western Australian Conservatorium of Music, Roberts has also served on the faculties at Furman University, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and Mercer University. Currently he is Professor of Piano and Director of the School of Music at Stephen F. Austin State University.
