Four American composers, all pianists, all prizewinners at the height of their powers. It is not surprising that the works collected here are idiomatic to the instrument and gratifying to play. Augusta Read Thomas explores the piano’s natural resonance and beauty. Wayne Peterson’s expressive, sweeping virtuosic lines reflect his past as a jazz pianist. Charles Wuorinen’s bracing rhythms leap across the instrument in a modernist romp that echoes the wit and humor of his opera. Eric Moe’s Afro-bebop encore rounds out the program. Lynn Raley has performed across the United States and in Canada, The Netherlands, Taiwan, and Thailand. He has presented solo concerts of contemporary music in Dallas, Houston, Cincinnati, and New York and given concert-talks on contemporary music at numerous colleges and music schools, including the Juilliard School, Rice University, and the Taipei National University of the Arts.
