Peter Mennin (1923-1983) and Norman Lloyd (1909-1980) were two of the most significant American composers of their generation, but their solo piano works remain unrecorded. Mennin's Piano Sonata (1963) is considered by many critics to be among the greatest American piano sonatas ever composed. Myron Silberstein is recording a full-length CD containing the complete piano works of Mennin and Lloyd. The release of this recording will correct a half-century-long absence of the two composer's works from the general listening repertoire. Don't miss the opportunity to support this historic project!
