Zaimont: Sonata/ Calendar Set/ Nocturne (Naxos: 8.559665)



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Judith Lang Zaimont's acclaimed music embraces a wide variety of forms. One of her earliest works is Nocturne: La fin de siecle, written as a 'personal valentine to the great pianist-composers of the Romantic Era'. Rich in contrast, perfect in form, it provides a deeply enriching listening experience. A Calendar Set (1978) charts the months of the year with imagination and precision, whilst the introduction of carols and familiar songs adds to the setting's lyricism. Sonata was completed in 2000 and is one of her most challenging works - atmospheric, quite impressionistic in places, and ending with a brilliantly virtuosic finale.

Judith Lang Zaimont's music is vital, approachable and ingenious. It's full of deft touches and the finale of the Piano Sonata has even been used as a featured work in the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. She has recorded the Nocturne and a selection of A Calendar Set on Four-tay whilst Joanne Polk has recorded Nocturne and the Sonata on Albany on an all-Zaimont disc - some overlap with our disc but not exclusively so.
