  • About This Album

    The CD of this album is available to purchase at ArkivMusic.

    These pieces, says the New York Times, “insist that symphonic music can be slyly fun.” Chamber Symphony was influenced both by Schoenberg and children’s cartoons. Grand Pianola Music “pokes fun,” says the Times, “at the heroics of Romantic concerto writing.”
