Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Fan's last album, 'World Keys', debuted at #3 on the Billboard Classical chart! Joel Fan's second recital for RR further solidifies his reputation for innovative programming and dazzling keyboard technique. Drawing on composers from North and South America, Fan makes brilliant work of major sonatas by Ginastera and Barber, along with "entertainments" by Gottschalk, Piazzolla, and Villa-Lobos. Of particular interest are two little known works by Amy Beach and the African-American composer Margaret Bonds. Another highlight is the premiere recording of a recent suite by William Bolcom.
