George Perle: Eight Pieces (1938-1997); Michael Brown, piano

9426

As the George Perle centennial year (2015) nears, pianist Michael Brown makes an important contribution to our knowledge of the American-master’s keyboard music. The earliest work on this disc, Classic Suite, as well as the most recently completed composition, Chansons cachées, are world-premiere recordings, with the entire program reflecting the performer’s deep involvement with Perle’s music over more than a decade. Writing to Michael Brown in 2003, Perle commented that: “it is a privilege to hear my music performed with such sympathy and understanding. Thank you!
