Notes & Reviews:

The extraordinary pianist Donna Amato presents a disc of the piano music of Arnold Rosner that includes five world premiere recordings. Born in 1945 Arnold Rosner has pursued a conservative but highly individual style, and his works have been widely performed, recorded, and reviewed. His music is known for it's gorgeous, long-breathed tunes and its powerful emotional appeal.

"Thoroughly tonal, casually paced, Rosner's music manages to rise above the cacophony and cleverness that often passes for music these days... I was genuinely taken back by the cagey simplicity of this music as well as Ms Amato's careful attention to Rosner's lush harmonies. I want to say that this doesn't seem difficult music to play, but that would belittle Ms Amato's role here. I cannot imagine anyone not liking this music." -American Record Guide
