Samuel Zyman was born in Mexico City in 1956 but later educated at Juilliard. His piano concerto, from the late 1980s, shows his romantic bent at its most uninhibited and fiery. Jose Rolon (1876-1945) is a new name to me. Also Mexican, Rolon - from an earlier generation - wrote in a more old-fashioned, French-influenced, picturesque manner. His pianism and scoring are quite elaborate. Lovers of big, exciting, virtuosic, in-thegrand- manner modern piano concertos will want to check out this release. The music, the playing, and the sonics are full-throated, rich, detailed, high-voltage, and colorful - full of bravura and bravado.
