Notes & Reviews:

On this disc, pianist Andrew Rangell chooses five sets of his favorite variations - works both little and well-known. Among the rarities are Bizet's little known set, a work described by Rangell as "a fascinating wedding of conceptual rigor and brilliant stagecraft." Also heard is Carl Nielsen's infrequently recorded Chaconne. Andrew Rangell was born in Chicago and raised in Colorado. He is a graduate of Juilliard, earning a doctorate in piano under Beveridge Webster. The New York Observer called him "an individualist...like the late Glen Gould, he seemed to be propelled by an irresistible force." Bridge Records has released a dozen discs featuring Rangell performing a wide range of keyboard music from the 16th century to the present day.
