About this Recording

CURRIER, S.: Piano Music (Melton) - Piano Sonata / Departures and Arrivals / Scarlatti Cadences / Brainstorm

Recipient of the prestigious Grawemeyer and Academy Awards, among other prizes and fellowships, Sebastian Currier composes ‘music with a distinctive voice’ (The New York Times) that is ‘lyrical, colorful, firmly rooted in tradition, but absolutely new’ (The Washington Post). It has been performed at major venues worldwide by acclaimed artists and orchestras. Whether inspired by Bach, Beethoven and Hindemith (Piano Sonata), playing with Scarlattian formulas, stirring up a satirical Brainstorm, or pondering on his compositional choices (Departures and Arrivals), Currier engages the listener’s head and heart. Laura Melton’s Naxos recording of Samuel Adler’s piano music (8.559602) was praised by Fanfare as ‘expert and excellent’.
