Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Pianist Findlay Cockrell has had a long and distinguished career in upstate New York as a soloist, chamber musician and concerto soloist. He served on the faculty at the State University of New York at Albany, where he taught piano and classes in music as well as creating a radio course titled Keyboard Masters. A graduate of Juilliard, Mr. Cockrell has performed around the United States and in Russia, where he appeared in recital at the Moscow Conservatory and a guest soloist at Tchaikovsky Hall with the Ossipov Orchestra. This recording includes three American composers whose last names begin with G: Gershwin, Gould and Gottschalk with some seldom recorded arrangements by Earl Wild of Gershwin songs.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Cockrell delivers a feel-good, lighthearted program; his playing is pleasant enough. Coming to the Gould (Morton), I think I've found the word I need: natural. Wild is much more naturalsounding in these styles.
