About this Recording

SMALL, H.: Lullaby of War / Renoir's Feast / 3 Etudes in Sound (Rayner, Nasseri)

American composer Haskell Small ‘has a rich imagination as a composer and an assured mastery of forms. Highly original without being self-consciously modernistic, this music has a sense of traditional structures and values without losing sight of its own era; it is inventive and accessible’ (The Washington Post). His Naxos début disc brings together three of Haskell’s finest works: Lullaby of War, commissioned by acclaimed pianist Soheil Nasseri; Renoir’s Feast, a commission by The Phillips Collection to celebrate the return of their beloved painting, Luncheon of the Boating Party; and Three Etudes in Sound, which explore the piano’s ‘color and sound control’.
