About this Recording

REALE, P.: Cello and Piano Works (Chopin's Ghosts) (K. Cook, C. Guzman)

Multi-award-winning composer Paul Reale has a distinctly American voice, enriched and given touches of familiarity through references to folk idiom and musical ancestors such as Bartók and Kodály. This program brings together Reale’s works for cello and piano. His earliest, Séance, is a haunting combination of modernist sounds and Baroque melodies. The operatic Cello Sonata No. 1 daringly uses What Shall We Do with the Drunken Sailor as the backbone of its finale, and the recent Chopin’s Ghost explores the Romantic composer’s long, weaving lines and evokes his poetic spirit.

Reale, Paul
