Considering the historical importance and the musical value of Henry Cowell's output for the piano, it is saddening to see how rarely it is played and recorded, then and now. Other than the invaluable recording of a selection of 20 made by the composer himself on Folkways in 1963 (Henry Cowell plays his own Piano Music), there wasn't much available in the LP era until 1977: usually limited selections included in miscellaneous collections (as with Shields 1976: Piano Music In America 1900-1945 and Miller 1976: Sound Forms For Piano). So the publication in 1977 by Finnadar of a modern recording of 24 pieces by Sorrel Doris Hays, adding up to an hour of music, was an important step - and it is this recording that TownHall has auspiciously made available on CD. It remains still highly valuable today - and not only because, alas, not much new water has flowed under the bridges since: other than New Music - Piano Compositions By Henry Cowell / Brown, Hays, Kubera, Cahill, a 1997 New Albion CD that is flawed both sonically and interpretively, there is a good collection from 1993 by Chris Burn on the small English label Acta Records, ...Read more ›

Format: Audio CD
Many may not recognize this as this the reissue of Doris Hays's original Folkways recording done when she had just performed the world premiere of Cowell's 3rd Concerto. Though she has changed her professional name to Sorrel to reflect her status as composer and honor her family name, Ms. Hays is the ultimate master of Cowell in performance, and to have this reissue is a wonderful event. The sounds are absolutely stunning in their richness. The technique has a fluidity that must be heard to be believed. Truly this recording will explain why Cowell's works have not been well known -- they demand a mastery that is almost mystic in its subtlety. I recommend this volume highly not only for all who love complex and intelligent sound but also for those who want an introduction to contemporary composition that can literally sweep them away.
