Notes & Reviews:

Pianist Paul Orgel has concertized throughout the U.S., China and Eastern Europe as a recitalist, soloist with orchestra and chamber musician. A graduate of Oberlin, the New England Conservatory, Boston University and Temple University, he is on the faculty at the University of Vermont and director of the concert series at Saint Michael's College.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
Mr Orgel's playing is tender, clean, in these pieces often written in three parts of deep bass octaves and arpeggios, rhythmic pulsing midrange, and high chromatic melodies. Pedal is especially careful and sensitive, expertly balancing clarity and harmonic richness. I can't get these pieces out of my head; they're sneakily memorable. Chausson's four neobaroque dances follow, more neo than baroque: a short dedication, then a sarabande, pavane, and forlane. Again Orgel's careful pedal sustains the romantic sonorities while keeping the chromatic harmonies clear and controlled. Orgel has assembled a very moving mood setting recital, and I look forward to hearing this again. The Steinway has clear, firm bass and midrange and a slightly muffled treble assisting the pianist's muted, anti-virtuoso approach.
