Notes & Reviews:

Andrew Rangell's latest disc is a series of five 20th century sonatas by four of the century's leading composers. Ernesto Halffter, a native of Madrid, came from a musically accomplished family. The 'Sonata' (1926-32) is saturated with materials presented in the very first measure. Three distinct themes, deftly connected, appear in the exposition whose motoric and spiky counterpoint has a distinct Stravinskian feel. This is Andrew Rangell's fifth release for Bridge. The Chicago-born pianist's recordings have received ecstatic praise. Writing of Rangell's last Bridge CD, an all Bach recital, The International Record Review called him "a free-thinker among pianists - a master of graded dynamics and the long crescendo." Rangell's consistently provocative playing and ideas are so interesting that we can hardly keep ourselves from appreciating them.
