Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Though unknown to many today, Margaret Ruthven Lang was one of America's pioneering woman composers. Distinguished pianist Lucy Mauro brings Lang's remarkable and underperformed keyboard creations to vibrant life with deep sensitivity, touching emotion, and admirable technical facility. These pieces will be exciting discoveries for any pianist or piano fan on the prowl for fresh repertoire.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
Lang's colorful imagination and use of picturesque poetry is admirably illustrated through Mauro's excellent balance, sensitivity, and taste. Program notes, by ARG's Lindsay Koob, are informative and well crafted, including all relevant poetry. This engaging release should encourage listeners to listen to the rest of the composer's output, especially Mauro's two recordings of Lang's vocal repertoire with tenor Donald George on Delos.
