Anne-Marie McDermott - Piano Sonatas and Concertos of Haydn

$ 29.99

This new recording of Haydn's two great piano concertos accompanies five of Haydn's finest piano sonatas, in brilliant performances by the American pianist Anne-Marie McDermott. The G major Piano Concerto features cadenzas, composed specifically for this recording, by the leading American composer, Charles Wuorinen. Mr. Wuorinen writes: "I've long admired Anne-Marie McDermott's unsurpassed performances of Haydn. Her understanding of his music is superb and her playing of it so apt and expressive that I could not resist her invitation to provide cadenzas for one of Haydn's concerti. It was a joy to write them, and reproducing my own thoughts in the language of this ancient composer was exhilarating. It goes without saying that their realization in sound is exactly what I had intended."
