Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Stephen Gosling plays the piano music of American composer Phillip Ramey (b.1939). His music is rooted in the motoric athleticism of Prokofiev and Bartok, tempered with sober lyricism, spicy modernist dissonance and a fresh approach to the grand Romantic gesture. Gosling's playing has been hailed as 'electric, luminous and posed' (The New York Times).

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Stephen Gosling plays all the music very well, and since the composer supervised the recordings I imagine the readings are definitive. Lovely program notes, written by that other great musical writer I read in childhood, Benjamin Folkman.
