Notes & Reviews:

The final album in Bruce Levingston's three-part series, Still Sound contains intimate works featuring world premiere recordings of Pulitzer Prize-winner William Bolcom's "New York Lights" written for Bruce Levingston, and Augusta Gross' new works inspired by Satie and PSrt. Bruce Levingston is one of the leading figures on the contemporary music scene. The New York Times calls him "[one] of "today's most adventurous musicians" and describes his performances as "graceful," "dreamy" and "hauntingly serene"; The New Yorker describes him as "a poetic pianist who has a gift for inventive - and glamorous - programming."
