Notes & Reviews:

"Another splendidly recorded American program from Albany with the impressive Albany Symphony. Allen Shawn's colorful new piano concerto was written for Ursula Oppens, that tireless champion of new music, who plays it brilliantly. Benjamin Lees's Piano Concerto 2, from 1968, is typical of this master composer... Ian Hobson, a heroic advocate of Lee's tough-minded music, plays the hell out of this piece..." -Sullivan ARG

"This recent release offers a rewarding sample of diverse American works - light and diverting as well as serious and ambitious - whose dates of composition span nearly half a century." - Walter Simmons, Fanfare
