Notes & Reviews:

Allen Shawn's (b. 1948) compositional oeuvre for piano comprises four sonatas, numerous cycles, preludes, two piano concerti and a host of individual character pieces. An exceptional stylistic diversity and remarkable sensitivity to the aesthetics of timbre marks his works. With spontaneity that almost suggests improvisation, he draws lavishly on the full range of means from rhythm-stressing virtuosity and energetic power right through to the expression of deepest reflectivity and melancholy. Mr. Shawn communicates his emotionality straight to the listener.
