About the album

Annotator Allan Kozinn writes: "if audiences listened as devotedly to contemporary piano scores as to the great works of the 17th through early 20th centuries, the two works Martin Perry plays here would be regarded as landmarks of the piano’s huge repertory. No doubt one day they will be – Paul Hindemith’s Ludus Tonalis has a constituency among discerning pianists and listeners; for many, Hugo Weisgall’s Sonata for Piano remains an undiscovered gem, something that may change once listeners who think of Weisgall as principally a vocal composer realize that his instrumental music is as just as dazzling." Martin Perry delivers intensely musical, brilliantly realized readings of these two important twentieth century keyboard masterworks.
Martin Perry liefert intensiv musikalische, brillant realisierte Interpretationen zu Kompositionen zweier wichtiger Meisterwerke für Piano im 20. Jahrhundert: Musik von Paul Hindemith und Hugo Weisgall.

Artist(s)

Martin Perry is an American pianist who, while well-versed in many genres, has established himself as a specialist in modernist music. Raised in Sacramento, California, Perry studied piano with Patricia Taylor Lee, Thomas Schumacher, and Adele Marcus (a pupil of Russian pianist Josef Lhévinne), and attended the University of Maryland and Juilliard. Following a debut recital at Carnegie Hall, Perry toured the United States. He has performed with the Boston Pops, the Portland Symphony Orchestra, the Arkansas Symphony, the Florida Philharmonic, the Baltic Philharmonic, and the Moscow Philharmonic. He has performed chamber music with the Cassatt Quartet and the DaPonte Quartet and is a member of the Nordica Trio. His wide repertoire includes early Romantic works by Mendelssohn, Chopin, and Schumann, which he performs on fortepiano, and he devotes much of his time promoting the 20th century works of Charles Ives, Alan Hovhaness, and Charles Tomlinson Griffes. He has recorded solo piano music for Bridge, and writes a blog on music, Con Spirito.
