Notes & Reviews:

Peter Seivewright studied music at Oxford and at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. He has appeared as concerto soloist with a number of leading British orchestras. His CD discography is extensive and includes the complete piano music of Carl Nielsen, among many other recordings. He is a professor at the Academy for the Performing Arts at the University of Trinidad and Tobago.

In the first of a projected series of five CDs, Seivewright presents three great American piano sonatas: those of Elliot Carter, Miklos Rózsa, and the Fourth Sonata of Edward MacDowell. Seivewright is a master at the music, having some years ago played the Carter sonata, in the presence of the composer, from memory an incredible achievement which the composer duly acknowledged. International Record Review says Well recommended and Gramophone confirmed that throughout, Seivewright exhibits a prodigious technique.
