Anne-Marie McDermott: Haydn Sonatas, Vol. 2
The esteemed American pianist Anne-Marie McDermott has played concertos, recitals and chamber music in hundreds of cities in the United States, Europe and Asia. Recent collaborations include recitals with her violin partner, Nadja Salerno Sonnenberg, chamber music with the piano quartet, Opus One, and concertos with the New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, and Dallas Symphony Orchestra in Vail, Colorado. Ms. McDermott's upcoming recordings for Bridge include a series of Mozart concertos, and the new Poul Ruders Piano Concerto No. 3, "Paganini Variations", recorded with the Odense Symphony Orchestra.
"McDermott plays with tremendous wit, bringing out the geniality and humor of Haydn with great élan. She is an absolute marvel of clear articulation. When you hear her pull back ever-so-slightly on the volume, it’s as if she were directing a small orchestra, so perfect is the effect. In short, an excellent release. — The Art Music Lounge
