Notes & Reviews:

"In some ways Piston was the dean of American muisc. But as a result of his intellect and his association with the university environment, he was considered to be a somewhat dull, academic composer. For anyone familiar with Piston's music, it is clear that he is neither dull nor academic, but incredibly imaginative and innovative. I have studied most of his output and I have come to realize that he was a master, an inspired composer." - Gerard Schwarz
