Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
These are reliable, faithful, and technically brilliant readings captured in a warm, concertlike acoustic. I find Leo Smit's performances for Sony their equal except for the sound, which I strangely continue to prefer: Smit's release is much older; and the keyboard sound is very close. I hope Ms Russo releases a performance of the Piano Fantasy.

After her successful disc of music by Clara Schumann, American-born pianist Eugenie Russo releases an album of piano works by Aaron Copland. Besides his Piano Sonata the disc features an arrangement of the popular Rodeo and Leonard Bernstein's version of El Salon Mexico. An all-American affair for the true piano connoisseur!
