Notes & Reviews:

A uniquely valuable release consisting entirely of world premiere recordings of works by a highly respected and influential name in American 20th Century music. They include a Sonata for Violin and Piano, Op. 15 which had been lost for more than 70 years until rediscovered by the soloist on this recording, Hasse Borup.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
This new, well-recorded Naxos offers first recordings of works for piano, for violin, and for violin-and-piano duo, all written in the 1940s, 50s, and 60s. The six short piano sonatinas are, as you'd expect, modest pieces, some sparkling and lively, some more relaxed and performable by students. Each of these nicelyplayed items has its individual charms; and all are pleasing, genial, unassuming creations. As is typical for Persichetti, the harmonic language varies from an Americanized version of Hindemithian chromaticism to jazzy bitonality and simpler diatonic harmonies. Masques, a set of ten tiny bagatelles, some emulating prominent modern composers, some that sound like teaching pieces, is appended as a bonus. Finally there's Persichetti's Serenade 4, again about 9 minutes long. The title is appropriate, as the Serenade's two slower and longer movements do indeed spin out lilting, amorous songs we can easily picture sung in moonlight beneath the beloved's window. These are interspersed with a pair of lively capriccios that keep the mood light-hearted and high-spirited.
