Harold Shapero: Piano Music

Harold Shapero (1920-2013) reacted against the dominance of modernism in American musical life in the mid-twentieth-century by using a Neoclassical language with its roots in Beethoven and Schubert, initially animated by Stravinsky. These three early piano works — two of them receiving their first-ever recordings — reveal Shapero's superb craftsmanship and his ready wit, in music which embraces the past instead of rejecting it.

1 review for Harold Shapero: Piano Music

  1. :

    “… Both here [Sonata in F minor] and in the C minor Variations of 1947 (both first recordings), the idiom is rugged, the scale substantial and the initial effect powerful. Sally Pinkas’s admirable and close-miked performances are suitably robust. She is joined by Evan Hirsch for the Four-Hand Sonata, which recalls Copland and Poulenc.” International Piano
