Usually ships within 1-3 days
Generally recognized as the father of the American Neo-Romantic movement in music, David Del Tredici
has received numerous awards, including the Pulitzer Prize. His recent energetic output for piano solo is due partly to a close artistic collaboration with Marc Peloquin
, resulting specifically in S/M Ballade, a "pianistic terror"
. The finale of Gotham Glory is another virtuoso test, Del Tredici's celebration of New York closing with a Grand Fantasy
derived from a waltz by Emil Waldteufel. This is the first of three volumes of David Del Tredici's complete piano music, with its generously rewarding combination of achingly expressive romanticism, subtle references and ever-present sense of covert and overt drama.
