George Perle: Solos and Duos

$ 29.99

Among the remarkable milestones of George Perle’s compositional journey are his works for solo instruments, the first composed in 1942, with another eleven written across a distinguished career. This two-disc set includes many of the solo works in their first recordings, as well as duo works from throughout the great American composer's career.  Noted soloists on this two-disc set are pianists Leon Fleisher, Richard Goode, and Horacio Gutierrez, clarinetist Charles Neidich, and cellist Jay Campbell.


"...the star among stars on this twin pack, apart from Perle himself, is cellist Jay Campbell. What a glorious rich cello voice, and what terrific agility from the bass string right up into thumb position! Perle clearly loved the instrument and Campbell seems to enjoy playing his work." — the WholeNote

"The seriousness of intent and the comprehensive instrumental possibilities make this a welcome addition for all those who appreciate George Perle or would like to explore his works and do not know a great deal of his music as yet. I recommend it strongly." — Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music

"This set of his solos and duos for violin, clarinet, cello, double bass, bassoon, and piano is a rich and various trip through the aesthetic that many of us have come to feel especially at home in." — Positive feedback
