Notes & Reviews:

Born in New York City, Joshua Pierce studied at the Cleveland Institute, Juilliard School, Manhattan School of Music and Columbia University. His teachers and mentors included Dorothy Taubman, Arthur Balsam, Victor Babin and Robert Godsend. He also studied with cellists Bernard Greenhouse of the Beaux Arts Trio and Jascha Silberstein. According to our traditional view, Johann Sebastian Bach, was a Baroque composer, Haydn a classicist and Mendelssohn one of the early romantics. All of them are known for their instrumental works and all of them wrote keyboard concertos; indeed, the three concertos contained on this CD constitute an almost capsule history of the form.
