Anne-Marie McDermott: Prokofiev - The Sonatas for Piano

$ 44.99

This release completes Anne-Marie McDermott's survey of the Prokofiev Sonatas, originally begun for Arabesque Records. A passionate Prokofiev champion, Ms. McDermott has performed the complete cycle of sonatas to great acclaim at the Lincoln Center Festival, the University of Arizona, Chamber Music Northwest (Portland) and at UCLA's Schoenberg Hall. This collection issues Ms. McDermott's recordings of Sonatas No. 2, 4 and 7 for the first time, and collects the other sonatas along with Prokofiev's Sarcasms, Op. 17. Anne-Marie McDermott made her debut with the New York Philharmonic in 1997 and has since appeared with the orchestras of Atlanta, Baltimore, St. Louis, the LA Chamber Orchestra, the Mostly Mozart Orchestra, and the National Symphony. She has toured extensively with the Australian Chamber Orchestra and the Moscow Virtuosi. In 2008 Bridge Records issued her recording with the Dallas Symphony of Gershwin's Complete Music for Piano and Orchestra (BRIDGE 9252), a disc selected as Gramophone's Editor's Choice.



“Anne-Marie McDermott jumpts to the top of my list with this new set. The performances, along with Bridge’s usual top quality piano sound, make this set a must have...a release not to be missed.” - American Record Guide

“If you’re looking for a package deal, this cycle takes its place with the Raekallio and the Chiu as the best ever recorded, well above the relatively plain recordings by Sandor, Nissman, and Boris Berman. The excellent engineering only makes the release that much more attractive. Strongest recommendation.” - Fanfare

“You could hardly wish for playing of a greater integrity than from Anne-Marie McDermott. Hers is a formidable achievement, reminding us that we have waited a long time for an American pianist of this stature.” - Gramophone
