Notes & Reviews:

George Antheil was a crazy fellow who very much fancied himself in the role of the "bad boy," as he termed himself in the title of his autobiography. On the other hand, he aimed at doing more than just scandalizing and shocking the music world; his ambition as an artist and especially as a composer was great and to be taken seriously: "By one stroke I wish to conquer the world. I feel within me a greatness which no one yet has dreamed of. I will blast a new way." He sought this new way his whole life long, from the scandalous Ballet mTcanique to his late symphonies.

Gramophone Magazine
Some of this is hilarious 1920s music. George Antheil, the self-styled 'bad boy of music'... is in fine kleptomaniac form at a time when he idolised Stravinsky and plagiarised compulsively. Both the concertos and the five piano works are played with total control and abundant zest by Markus Becker.
