Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This CD, the 1st of 2 to examine American composer Farwell's (1872-1952) piano music marks the 140th anniversary of his birth and the 60th of his death and includes a number of world premiere recordings.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
The Vale of Enitharmon, from 1930, is a colorful, highly perfumed Blake-inspired fantasy that sounds a bit like Fauré. Her warm tone, enhanced by the recording, is especially inviting in The Vale of Enitharmon, which is the most attractive offering here. She also contributes the authoritative, well-written annotations, which reveal both the bright and racist sides of the Indianist phenomenon. One looks forward to the next volume in this welcome series.
