Notes & Reviews:

The early Romantic period was the heroic age of pianism. A popular title and specific musical type is the 'Rondo,' an old and traditional musical format newly minted under the glittering French or Italian title of 'Brilliant' or 'Brilliante.' It became the favorite finale form in classical music and, starting in the French Baroque and continuing well into the 19th century, often appeared as an independent solo keyboard piece. A calculated mixture of elegance and graciousness on the one hand and flying finger flash on the other is typical of the age. The combination of 'grazioso' and 'brilliante' might almost be said to some up the aesthetic of the early Romantic pianism. As can be expected, the versatile and highly virtuosic American pianist Joshua Pierce is completely at home in this repertoire. His huge range and varied repertoire are unique among contemporary pianists ranging from the prepared piano works of John Cage to the masterpieces of the standard repertoire to rediscovered masterpieces of the high Romantic era.
