Philip Corner - 40 Years And One CD 20917
Perhaps the single most striking quality of Corner?s piano music, beyond the pleasure of the music, is the crystal clarity of the concepts. Corner moves purposefully from deep musical thought via these concepts to highly pianistic compositions with a broad range of affect, much as Bach moves from his deep music via contrapuntal forms to the unfolding of his keyboard works. There is love for the piano, and in recording the works, and, in relationship to it, the choice mastering techniques for each work. There he was joyful. ?Charlie Morrow
