COOMAN: Piano Music

This disc presents a survey of the piano music of American composer Carson Cooman, performed by pianist Donna Amato, for whom the virtuosic Fourth Piano Sonata was composed. The works range in character – from the passionate, landscape-inspired drama of Seascape Passion: Midday Brightness (Third Piano Sonata), to the mystical contemplation of Dream-Tombeau: Crucifixus, to a light-hearted and celebratory treatment of “God Save the King / My Country ’Tis of Thee” in Kayser Variations. Dream Etudes, Book II explores the piano’s ringing sonic possibilities, while Postcard Partita consists of short movements originally written as brief musical gifts for the composer’s friends and colleagues.
