Notes & Reviews:

This album features a range of piano performances by Thomas Hecht, who at the time of recording headed the piano department at Peabody Conservatorium's new Singapore Music School. Hecht performs three great mid-20th-century works for solo piano. The two major American piano sonatas, by Samuel Barber and Aaron Copland, sandwich a rarely-heard New Zealand gem, Douglas Lilburn's "Chaconne" of 1946.
