About the album

A proponent of the road less traveled, pianist Martin Perry is a native Californian of Armenian-American heritage. Much admired as an interpreter of modernist piano repertoire, he has appeared with orchestras from the Boston Pops to the Moscow Philharmonic. Perry is heard here in highly charged readings of two modern classics and one rarity- Miklos Rózsa's sonata, composed in 1948. Rózsa was best known for composing scores for more than 100 Hollywood films, but composed a great deal of concert music. His Piano Sonata, Op. 20 is the most substantial of his keyboard compositions, and the one which in its uncompromisingly dissonant and often percussive piano style seems most clearly imbued with the spirit of his fellow countryman, Béla Bartók. Next month Bridge Records will issue Perry's recording of Charles Ives's "Concord" Sonata, in the premiere recording of John Kirkpatrick's final edition of the work.
