The works of Charles Tomlinson Griffes are alien to the concert hall, much to my regret, since he is one of the finest American composers. Unfortunately, because Griffes died at a very early age, his output is limited to only a few works. While he is best known for his exotic tone poems, his piano sonata is truly one of the most important American works of this genre (which include the Barber and Ives sonatas).

The ballet presented on this Koch disc, The Kairn of Koridwen, has only received this one fine recording, and the disc has long been out of print. As the author of the notes states, the piece is for a small ensemble, but the piece could hardly be called "chamber music." For all the ardor and sacrilege of the plot, the music is stately and far from histrionic, although the influence of Scriabin is unmistakable. Still, the magical beauty of the music is irresistible. This is a recording that should possibly be re-released by Guild, since the English label seems to be reissuing recordings from the Koch catalogue.
