Notes & Reviews:

Composer Robert Xavier Rodriguez comments that his teacher Nadia Boulanger told him "that I would be only half a composer until I also learned to express in my music the same love of laughter that she knew I enjoyed as a person... I think Boulanger would be pleased to see that all of the pieces on this CD, dating from the 80s to the present, incorporate humor in some way." Noted pianist Jeff Lankov, who has edited Rodriguez's piano works for G. Schirmer, gives informed, sensitive performances of this delightful music.
