"Orion's Copland record is very fine. The Piano Sonata remains a very powerful work thirty years after its first performance. Silverman is outstanding." - The New Records

"A most welcome discovery…a pianist with enormous musical powers…technical skill which makes it all shine through…a memorable and touchingly beautiful performance." - Stereo Guide

This recording showcases the exquisite artistry and musicianship of pianist Robert Silverman, and the quintessential musical intelligence of composer Aaron Copland. Silverman plays with conviction and grace as he soars through classic repertoire; style and concentration are his trademarks.

Copland's complex work, sometimes beautiful, sometimes grotesque, is, quite simply, a masterpiece by the doyen of American composers and a landmark of its genre in twentieth century music.
