Notes & Reviews:

This tour de force of Italian and Russian composers is a catalyst for conversation and a pleasure to the ears. All three works are brilliant showpieces for piano and orchestra. In this much anticipated reissue, we hear Joshue Piece's bravura performance of the famed Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganin, the work in which Rachmaninov essentially invented the "Hollywood Sound" in the ultra-romantic 18th Variation. Alfredo Casella, whom record companies continually threaten to "really" discovery, shows an exuberant, brassy, neo-Baroque style in his exciting Partita. Joshua Pierce, a graduate of Juilliard has performed all over the world and is one of the most prolific recording artists in recent history.
